Dundee Rep’s brand new co-production with Vanishing Point

We are really excited to announce a brand new co-production with Vanishing Point which will be scheduled to tour around Dundee, Glasgow, Inverness and Edinburgh in Spring 2021.

WHO FRAMED FRANKIE DRAGO? (working title) will be rehearsed in our very own rehearsal room here at Dundee Rep in February 2021, and ready for touring in March (if Covid restrictions allow us). If not, we will have a brand-new show ready for the theatres that want it, when conditions better allow for a live presentation. In that instance, we would also work with Vanishing Point to explore ways of sharing a sense of the work and the artists involved with audiences, in a way that serves the work and works within restrictions.

Each night four actors, including members of our very own Dundee Rep Ensemble as well as guest actors will be at the front of the stage, shrouded in Perspex booths and with a microphone each, they will play the voices of the twenty-plus parts in the show. 

The onstage actors will then lip-sync to the voices. The catch? The main role of the protagonist will be played by a DIFFERENT ACTOR EACH NIGHT. Audiences will be in for a treat as they watch the actor be guided through the show by the rest of the company and with the help of an internal monologue. 

The show will be a celebration of live-ness, of the importance of stories and art, especially when times are hard. 

We are looking forward to working closely with Vanishing Point again and bringing this fantastic show to life.
