Achilles – an ending and a beginning

At the end of January we finished a stage of work on Ewan’s solo piece, Achilles, with a sold out run of shows at the Citizens Theatre and the manipulate visual theatre festival. Huge thanks to everyone who made it happen.

We’re now planning the next stages for the show – with a coast-to coast tour of Scotland planned and even some international dates for the first time. Watch this space.

Meanwhile, here’s some photos, reviews and audience comments from the show…

“a tightly-reined narrative that lands all the right emotional punches… a bold, unconstrained outpouring of pain and loss that drags the audience right into the heart of Achilles’ agony”

Christine Irvine, Exeunt

“recounted in unsparing, gruesomely poetic detail… with muscular, visual eloquence… the songs carry a powerful spiritual resonance and are performed with real depth of expression”

Mark Brown, Sunday Herald

“Chillingly memorable”

Mary Brennan, The Herald

“So so so good. We need more theatre like this. Phenomenal storytelling, performance, engagement, pathos, and all in 45 minutes! MORE PLEASE!!”

“No adequate words — overwhelming. Wonderful.”
