Rothesay Joint Campus is to host a performance next month of a thought-provoking play on road safety.
The performance of ‘Better Late than Dead On Time’, produced by the Theatre and Learning Company, looks at contrasting driver and pedestrian behaviour within one family, followed by a workshop to discuss the issues raised in the drama.
The characters featured are Robert, a 70-year-old grandfather; Miriam, his daughter and a busy working mum, who takes her daughter Sinead to school by car;
Sinead, who is due to give a presentation to the whole school and cannot be late but knows mum needs to get to work on time too; and grandson Aiden, distracted and constantly checking his phone on his way to school.
To find out what happens to this ordinary family on this extraordinary day, and put your driving reaction times to the test, Top Gear-style, come along to Rothesay Joint Campus at 3.35pm on Monday, March 10. The event, organised by Argyll and Bute Council’s youth services team, is open to all age groups and is free of charge.
