“The holidays are like a microwave. It’s over before you know it”

Four Scottish teenagers sit on a wall. Barry’s bored. It’s summer. Exam results around the corner. Then he meets Michelle. And everything he thought he knew is turned upside down.

Award-winning writer D.C. Jackson’s heady cocktail of laugh-out-loud comedy and poignant truth follows Barry, Michelle, Norma and Rab as they tackle the onslaught of love, life, and identity over one hot summer.

Mayford Road Productions are delighted to present Jackson’s first play: fast-paced, hard-hitting, and gloriously funny, it’s the first in a trilogy of plays that Jackson wrote about his home town, Stewarton.

Mayford Road Productions have produced a number of shows, including an acclaimed revival of another D. C. Jackson play – My Romantic History at the Old Red Lion in 2013 – and are hoping to produce the complete trilogy in 2015. Needless to say, they really like his work. They are thrilled to be producing The Wall in association with The Share Foundation, a charity who work to build financial support for young children in care. Since their work began in 2012 the organisation has benefited over 50,000 young people. All profit from this production will be donated to the charity.

Charity Gala Night – Sat 1 November
The performance on Saturday 1 November will be a Charity Gala Night in aid of The Share Foundation. There will be a cast Meet And Greet after the show and the opportunity for you to show your sup port of this fantastic charity. Mayford Road and The Hope Theatre sincerely hope (ahem!) you are able to join us on this night in order to raise some money for this worthwhile cause.
