Scottish actor and director, David Hayman, is bringing his new show on the independence referendum - which launched at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - to Rothesay Pavilion on September 3.
‘The Pitiless Storm’ dramatises a dilemma for those on the left when deciding how to vote in the referendum.
It is a one-man show written by Chris Dolan and produced by FairPley and deals with the crisis of conscience in a popular and effective trade union official on the eve of the referendum, facing a conflict between his lifelong loyalty to the labour and trade union movement, and the situation he finds in his homeland.
David, who has a prior connection to the island having served as Chieftain at Bute’s Highland Games in 2010, said: “The play deals with a very real dilemma faced by many on the left as September approaches. Do we stick with the ideals we have grown up with, or face the reality of the issues facing Scotland today.”
A convinced ‘Yes’ voter, David hopes that the play will help convince more people to vote for Independence in the referendum in September. He said: “We’re getting round as much of Scotland as possible before September 18, and want to speak in particular to undecided voters on Bute before then.”
Tickets for ‘The Pitiless Storm’ are available from the box office at the Pavilion on 01700 504250.
