A sharply perceptive, darkly funny riff on urban isolation by one of Scotland’s leading playwrights.

This is a big day for Sadie and Bill; their favourite person is coming to visit. They’ve gone to great lengths to prepare for the occasion. It’s an even bigger day for Jackie; and not one she’d anticipated. Should she make the most of it? She doesn’t know if she can any more; too many people depend on her.

Linda McLean’s play Any Given Day explores our fear of the unknown, and our guilt and responsibility towards ourselves and others.

It was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in May 2010.

‘As bold, unnerving and fraught as anything McLean has written’

‘An excellent play which truly does horrify on so many levels’
