Never one to give its actors or audience an easy time of it, Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre promises a “searing, poetic and hard-hitting new play” in the shape of Linda McLean’s Any Given Day, running from Saturday 29 May until Saturday 19 June.
According to the website, this is a big day for Sadie and Bill; their favourite person is coming to visit. They’ve gone to great lengths to prepare for the occasion.
It’s an even bigger day for Jackie; and not one she’d anticipated. Should she should make the most of it? She doesn’t know if she can any more; too many people depend on her.
Exploring our fear of the unknown and our guilt and responsibility towards ourselves and others, the play stars Kate Dickie (Red Road), Kathryn Howden, Lewis Howden and Jamie Quinn.
Full details are available on the Traverse Theatre website now.
