The Dumfries and Galloway Arts Fest has numerous Theatre events playing out across the region as the festival fast approaches (24th May - 2nd June 2013):
National Theatre of Scotland
Calum's Road has become the stuff of modern folklore. It is the remarkable true story of one man's single-minded determination to challenge the powers-that-be and is brought to stages across Scotland for the first time.
Based on Roger Hutchison’s elegiac novel of the same name, Scottish playwright David Harrower offers audiences the richly detailed and unhurried description of a dying way of life in Northern Raasay.

Oliver Reed: Wild Thing
Hoddom and Ecclefechan Village Hall, and Old Well Theatre Moffat
In this blistering one-man show we invite you to join legendary hellraiser Oliver Reed as he knocks back a few drinks and shares his incredible life story.
From the boyhood excitement of learning he was a descendent of Peter the Great, through the success of Oliver!, boozy adventures with Keith Moon and disastrous chat show appearances - this was a life well lived.
