On the night of Sunday December 28, 1879, the unthinkable happened. Battered by a ferocious storm, the Tay Bridge collapsed.
Tay Bridge tells the poignant and unexpected stories of the suddenly interrupted passengers making the journey that night. Who were they? Where were they going? What were they escaping, and where did they believe they were heading?
Written by Peter Arnott and directed by Dundee Rep Artistic Director Andrew Panton, Tay Bridge is a heartfelt and moving portrait of an era, and of a group of people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. A powerful mood piece, Tay Bridge gives a whole new perspective on this famous bridge disaster.
This unique commission from one of Scotland’s most iconic writers kicks off Dundee Rep’s anniversary season of local stories straight from the heart of Dundee.
WRITTEN BY PETER ARNOTT (FROM AN ORIGINAL IDEA BY TOM McGOVERN)
DIRECTED BY ANDREW PANTON
