T IN THE SHED
T in the Shed will be performed at Queen Margaret University’s Black Box Theatre on Thursday 1st August and Friday 2nd August at 7.30pm with a matinee performance on Sunday 4th August at 2.30pm. Tickets can be bought either as a Standard Ticket or a Concession Ticket. We invite; children under 12, students, and any member of a Scottish Men’s Shed to purchase a concession ticket.
A new play written by Matt Dunn with men from men’s sheds across Scotland -St Andrews, Glenrothes, Galashiels, Leith, Barrhead and Stonehouse- will be performed for the first time to an audience at the Black Box Theatre, Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh.
This play tells the story of what is a men’s shed and why is men’s shed so important. You can expect humour, music, friendship and even a tear as we share the real life stories of over 50 men who are in sheds across Scotland right now!!
We follow Harry, Mike, Jim and Simon, four men later in life who decide to change the hand they have been dealt and start their own men's shed. This play is about a total loss of community and four men’s fight to bring that community back to life as they contend with their own issues of; isolation and loss of purpose. Life has changed and so must they. ‘If we want it, nobody is going to do it for us…’
