Shang-a-Lang – 2-for-1 ticket offer!

19 09 2014

Friday 19 September
7.30pm

Rapture Theatre
written by Catherine Johnson directed by Michael Emans

Fresh from its sell-out 2013 tour, Shang A Lang returns to venues across Scotland, showcasing its wickedly funny script, hilariously talented cast and fantastic soundtrack. Written by Catherine Johnson (writer of the smash hit Mamma Mia) and directed by Rapture’s Artistic Director Michael Emans this production is an all-round great night out experience.

Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and laugh-out-loud adult humour.

Shang-a-Lang follows three flighty, forty-something, Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where they eagerly await to see their heroes, the Rollers, perform once again. They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it.

Lauren tries to stay sober, Jackie tries to stay married and Pauline continues to search for her_DSC3927 Woody.

Shang-a-Lang is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous
soundtrack – a cross between a Scottish Shirley Valentine and Shameless.

Please note: Shang a Lang is a dramatic play, not a musical. Also as part of the production’s
comedic style, the show contains very strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.

Eastwood Park Gallery – New Exhibition

23 07 2012

Gavin Russell – Georgia

This series of pictures came from a single trip by amateur photographer Gavin Russell to Georgia in 2009. The country was just recovering from the recent military conflict with Russia (in 2008) and tourists were a rare sight. The shots were taken mainly in three locations, Tblisi the faded capital city where power-cuts were common, Kazbegi, a formerly crucial but now forgotten outpost on the Trans Caucasus Highway, and Omalo, a remote mountain village on the Chechen Border where there was no gas, electricity or running water.

The people in Georgia were warm, welcoming and delighted to share their country with the few tourists that came. They were rightfully proud of a beautiful country with boasts incredible natural scenery alongside the scars and monuments of a traumatic past.

During his travels Gavin refused to use maps or guide books so the majority of the shots were taken as candid street images during many a long and lost wander.

Exhibition runs to 26 August 2012
