Our Lords and Masters In Their Human Form
Eight public figures find themselves in a sealed room, the glassy eye of a camera ready to capture their every word. There’s no room for slip-ups and there’s no room for arguing – they must work together. However a mysterious voice is working against them.
A workshop production, adapted from the novel by Irvine Welsh
Before Trainspotting came Skagboys.
Mark Renton has it all: he’s young, has a pretty girlfriend, a place at university and a bright future. But along with his friends; the unemployed Spud, the scamming Sick Boy and the psychotic Frank Begbie, they struggle to belong in the early 1980s. As they spin more out of control, their only way out is heroin, stealing and violence, and not one of them will ever be the same again.
Set in Scotland during one of the most turbulent decades in British memory, Skagboys explores the themes of lad culture, young people facing life after university, unemployment, and the extremes to which they go to escape.
