Theatre Preview: Promises, Promises, 3 – 6 February, Tron Theatre, Glasgow

26 Jan

Glasgow’s Tron Theatre presents the World Premiere of Promises Promises, the new thriller from award-winning Scottish playwright Douglas Maxwell, from Wednesday 3 – Saturday 6 February.

Inspired by true events, ‘Promises Promises’ is a one-woman show revolving around the cynical character of Maggie Brodie.

Maggie (Joanna Tope) is a retired teacher who has been dragged back to her local primary school for a reluctant day of supply teaching. Her craving for alcohol is strong and her opinion of her colleagues is rock bottom, so it’s going to be a tough day.

Then there’s Rosie, a six year old Somalian girl who refuses to speak. Her community leaders believe she is possessed and are on their way to start her ‘treatment’. But Maggie, surprised by her connection to this girl, knows they are wrong. So wrong, that she is going to have to take drastic action…

Maxwell’s show combines a specially composed soundtrack by Karen MacIver and integrated projections by Tim Reid.
