PAINES PLOUGH'S ROUNDABOUT @ SUMMERHALL (venue 26)

4 - 27TH AUGUST 2017, 18:05

 

Being a small-time drug dealer in Cardiff and living up to your family’s expectations is tough. Marc avoids his mum, disguises his cannabis plants with fake tomatoes at the allotment, and now has to bail his old man out of £6,000 owed to local loan shark Oggy. When he meets Lisa for the first time in years, things get even messier. Oggy wants Lisa. Lisa wants Marc. Marc wants to survive the day.

A one-man comedy from critically acclaimed writer Alan Harris (Paines Plough, National Theatre Wales) and award-winning Welsh company Dirty Protest.

Dirty Protest are joining the national theatre for new plays, Paines Plough in the Roundabout venue at Summerhall, in Edinburgh Festival 2017.

"There’s a real humanity to Last Christmas, a truth in the writing and playing that makes it one of the best things on the Fringe this year. Don’t miss it. ” ★★★★★  The Scotsman on Dirty Protest's 'Last Christmas', Edinburgh 2014
"A joyful, surprising tribute to love, hope, community and big ideas." ★★★★ Whats On Stage on Alan Harris' 'Love, Lies and Taxidermy', Edinburgh 2016
