Pibroch - Pay What You Can £15.00 / £12.00 / £10.00

How does it feel to find oneself on a ‘burning platform' with a pressing need for change but limited options? Pibroch is a multimedia theatre production which explores parallels between the Climate Emergency and the Piper Alpha Disaster in 1988.

Created by Aberdeenshire — based writer and artist, John Bolland, this exciting new production uses words, live music and striking visual imagery to represent the personal and social experiences of Piper Alpha survivors and their relationship to the challenges each of us face in a warming world.

Co-directed by Mark Thomson, former Artistic Director at the Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh, Pibroch is crafted by an outstanding team of theatre professionals. John Bolland's words are complemented by Fraser Fifield who provides live musical accompaniment to the performance.

The performance is followed by an after-show creative conversation allowing us to discuss the feelings and ideas evoked by the show and our general concerns and engagement with issues around the climate emergency. There is a short comfort break of around 10 minutes between the main performance and the post-show discussion which lasts around 30 minutes.

Ages: 12+ (Occasional strong language and sensitive topic matter based on real life traumatic events)

Film running time: 50m, Comfort break: 10m, Post-show discussion, 30m
