Now award-winning Edinburgh theatre company Nutshell is touring Scotland with Thread.This darkly funny play explores friendship, the choices we make and who we become when our memories start to fade.
Thread is the second play in Nutshell’s Still Points in a Turning World trilogy and will be touring this October as part of the Scotland wide Luminate Festival.
Come roll your dice at the Burntisland beetle drive and share Joan, William and Izzy’s tangled lives. Friends since primary school and closer-than-close ever since, identities stitched together as intricately as their homemade party clothes.
Living in the secure but suffocating embrace of a 1950s Scottish seaside community, who gets to become the person they want to be?
