Review of My Name is Saoirse at Scottish Storytelling Centre | Exeunt Magazine

Review of My Name is Saoirse at Scottish Storytelling Centre | Exeunt Magazine | Just Festival | Scoop.it
“Sewing stories.” Review of My Name is Saoirse at , by for Exeunt.
justfestival's insight:

"The play is on at the Scottish Storytellers Centre, which feels fitting: watching O’Connor knit her story together via the metaphor of patchwork quilts – “making a quilt is like life, you get some good patches and some bad patches, but it comes out okay in the end” – it makes you think about how strange it is that we have separate words for playwright and storyteller when, at their best, they both achieve the same ends."

★★★★★ There is nothing visibly unusual about teenager Evan, who kicks off his opening monologue with the line, “My problem is this. Ignorance. Complete blind ignorance.” Yet immediately, Euan Brockie’s pained delivery tells us this is not just another surly teenager. His portrayal of inner conflict

An Island Between Heaven and Earth

An Island Between Heaven and Earth | Just Festival | Scoop.it

"Its worth going to see. The acting is of a high quality, MacLeod who is played by Mark Kydd comes over as a believable and intriguing character. I loved the fact that the audience was so close to the performance that you felt you were at time intruding upon a real situation. Every member of the cast gave to my mind an outstanding performance."

Last two performances for An Island Between Heaven and Earth today and tomorrow, don't miss it out!
