A Traverse Theatre and Datum Point production in association with Paines Plough
Good With People
by David Harrower
March - April 2013
Harrower’s beautiful, deceptive wisp of a play…Duff and Scott-Ramsay are perfection.
Ben Brantley, NY Times
I always felt stupid saying something intelligent here.
Evan returns to Helensburgh, north-west Scotland; home to the nation’s Nuclear defence programme and once a thriving holiday resort. A place he's been trying to avoid.
Haunted by his past and afraid of his future, he finds Helen working at the Seaview Hotel.
From the same place, but worlds apart, their evening fizzes and fuses, toying with explosion. Will there be fallout?
David Harrower's play Knives in Hens was first staged by the Traverse in 1995 and has since become one of the most performed Scottish plays of all time. His play A Slow Air was a hit of The Traverse Theatre festival programme in 2010 and has since toured nationwide.
Good With People was co-commissioned and first co-produced by Paines Plough and Òran Mór as part of the 2010 season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint.
