Scot-Free: New Scottish Plays

Saturday Night at the Commodore by Rona Munro
A one-woman play in which an Aberdonian remembers a painful teenage betrayal;

Elizabeth Gordon Quinn by Chris Hannan
A startling and provocative play -  Guardian. A radically revised version is also available;

Dean Dad Dog by John McKay
