Wed 25 Jan - Thu 2 Feb 2017
From the writer of the highly acclaimed sell-out comedy play The Berries, Gary Robertson brings us another hilarious offering of Dundee life with The Scaffies.
The year is 1978, and Britain is experiencing social and political turmoil with a strong threat of nationwide strike action and disruption for many public sector workers. For one group of Dundee cleansing workers, it's business as usual...for the time being anyway.
Theirs is a sometimes thankless job of hard graft, sweat, grime and filth which they combat with serious bouts of heavy drinking and merciless exchanges of banter, mickey-taking and black humour. From the high hopes and expectations of a nation entering the World Cup in Argentina to the harsh conditions of an unforgiving winter, follow the scaffies as we step back in time to a culture long gone. This is working class humour at it's raw best, transported straight from the streets and straight into the theatre. Not to be missed.
