Linwood No More - October 2014
The Tron in Glasgow are hosting Linwood No More from 9-11th October 20014 at 8pm. Following the huge success at The Fringe this will be the last time the play is produced in Scotland this year.
Here's what the critics thought....
"Paul Coulter's one man play about redundancy and homelessness is highly pertinent in an era where job security is largely an alien concept. Linwood No More poignantly explores a recognisable tragedy. Coulter makes us care about this individual. Vincent Friell gives a powerful performace. He quickly gains our attention, never letting it go and richly colouring the light and shade in Coulter's elegant script; Liz Carruther's direction is assured in what is a tender tribute to the voiceless."
The Stage, Honour Bayes.
"Vincent Friell gives a strong performance as a man recounting his own decline. Coulter's tect, is strong on detail, sufficiently so that we feel this is a uinique story, not a generic one, although it's power certainly also rests in the fact that this is all too common a story in post industrial Scotland."
The Scotsman, Susan Mansfield
"One room, one man, one bench. The beautiful performance brings endless emotion to the evocative script. An incredibly relevant work, the piece gives a voice to the voiceless."

MacBheatha (Macbeth) August 2014
Following the sell out shows at The Citizens theatre in Glasgow in October 2013, White Stag have been commissioned to produce a run at The Edinburgh International Fringe Festival in August 2014 as part of Made in Scotland. This is a unique opportunity to see Ian MacDonalds's adaption of one of the worlds most successful plays performed in the language in which the great King would naturally have spoken. This is one show not to be missed. The play is a two actor show starring Catriona Lexy Campbell and David Walker. The play will be performed daily at Summer hall at 2pm from 11th - 24th August every day (except Monday 18th). Tickets will be priced at £12.50 / £9.00. The show is part funded by the highly prestigious Made In Scotland. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
"This powerful new one-hour adaption, translated into richly atmospheric Gaelic. A two-person format throws fierce emphasis onto the blighted and deteriorating relationship between Macbheatha and his wife. Superb, passionate and driven performances, sexually charged and blazing with ambition." (**** The Scotsman)

The Apple of My Eye - in development - Due for release October 2018
Saltcoats, Ayrshire in the mid 1990s. Estranged daughter Mary Carson returns home for the vigil of her fathers funeral, after 30 years. A worker in the Erskine military hospital, she comes to realise that the strict, distant, brutal and mentally deranged father she ran away from may hold something in common with the scarred Gulf War Veterans she cares for. Tales of murder, abuse and mental health are explored as she realises that the gulf between her and her father may have been closer that she had realised.
