Festival Interview: Nothing To Be Done | National Collective

Festival Interview: Nothing To Be Done | National Collective | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

Nothing To Be Done is an absurdist piece of theatre, currently showing at theSpace on North Bridge, inspired by Samuel Beckett’s classic Waiting For Godot. Based around two girls waiting for a train that never looks like it’s going to arrive, it features an all female cast and a fully original script. Deeply witty and philosophically intriguing, the play is oddly inspiring, not just in the play itself, but in the fact that such a young creative team have produced such a strong and compelling piece of theatre. I spoke to Meghan Tyler (writer and performer) about how the play came into its current form and the ambitious life philosophies it aims to explore.
