Made in Scotland: an anthology of new Scottish plays

Front Cover
An anthology of new Scottish plays selected by Ian Brown (former director of the Traverse theatre) and Mark Fisher (Editor of Theatre Scotland)

The Cut, by Mike Cullen is "A real discovery, an explosive thriller…Cullen's dialogue is demotic, foul-mouthed and occasionally bitterly funny, and the sense of violence and claustrophobia is often almost unbearably intense"; The Life of Stuff - "This brutally funny piece is almost unclassifiable. Imagine a collaboration between Joe Orton and William Burroughs and you will have some idea of Simon Donald's play: a ruthlessly and compulsively hilarious dark comedy thriller"; Bondagers, by Sue Glover "A striking experience…the mastery of the play was its rich, resonant musicality…All brilliantly structured, surging - with terrific dramatic energy"; Juliet Allardyce, by Duncan McLean "It is loud, coarse-tongued and funny, a series of affectionate, but telling snapshots which add up to a revealing portrait of the North-East as it is now" (Julie Morrice, Scotland on Sunday)
