Blackout performance in Glasgow

Followers of our blog will know that a group from the Young Co. recently took a brand new short play called Blackout by Davey Anderson, to the Royal National Theatre in London.

I'm still waiting on the elusive photos and blogs from crew that went down to London (I'll post once them if they ever arrive). I think they must still be basking in the warm glow of success!!

Anyway - there will be a very special one night only public performance of this piece at the Platform in Easterhouse next Wednesday 13 August 2008 at 7.30pm. This is an absolute exclusive - there will be no tickets on the door. You can email the Platform box office here to request tickets. It's first come, first served.

This is a really cool and very powerful piece of theatre written by one of Scotland's hottest playwrights. It's based on the true story of a teenager from Glasgow's East end. It's about "getting bullied, fighting back, turning vicious, doing something stupid, losing everything, then finding your way again".

The reaction to the first performance in London was absolutely brilliant and we are hoping that this piece will get the chance to have a wider audience in the future. In the mean time, I hope you get tickets for the Platform.
