Kill the old torture their young
A documentary maker returns to the city of his birth. His task, to film his impressions. An old man remembers a time when eagles flew over the city. A TV executive reaches breaking point in the city he loves. A struggling actor seeks fame in a city that doesn't seem to want him. A young woman ends her artistic dreams in a city that eludes her. A receptionist tries to break the mould of her life in the city where she's always lived. A rock star sings to himself in a city he's forgotten the name of... Each of them has a story to tell, but who will listen?
Kill the Old Torture Their Young premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in July 1998.
