About The Bench
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
A new play by award-winning Scottish writer Keir McAllister.
Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations he feels he’s failing to fulfill. For five minutes a day he finds a little peace alone on The Bench. Sandy is mourning the loss of his Maggie. The Bench is his memorial to her memory.
As both attempt to dictate the purpose of The Bench, so begins an epic conflict. A conflict that will change them both.
A comedy about safe spaces and the people that fill them… Waiting for Godot meets Still Game. ‘The Bench’ reunites the long-standing comedy partnership of Paul Sneddon (Vladimir McTavish) and Kier McAllister, from a script by McAllister and directed by award-winning comedian, Jojo Sutherland.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Bench are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
