The Oban Times - - Leisure -

Af­ter our sell- out run last year, we will be fresh from the Brighton Fringe and our first Scot­tish tour, per­form­ing two Ten­nessee Wil­liams shorts as a dou­ble-bill and a piece of new writ­ing.

This Scot­tish com­pany will have you ask­ing ques­tions, car­ried away on the wind and fac­ing the re­al­i­ties of life.

Both pro­duc­tions ap­pear at Venue 236, Green­side@In­fir­mary Street. 4-26 (Excl 13, 20)

Cast: Codge Craw­ford and He­len Fox.

In at­tempt­ing to cope with her hus­band’s death, she seeks an­swers from her psy­chi­a­trist and “the bot­tle” strug­gling to dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween fan­tasy and re­al­ity. The psy­chi­a­trist is a cold, pro­mis­cu­ous and preda­tory man, but with a seem­ingly gen­uine con­cern for his pa­tient.This play leaves you won­der­ing whose truth is real…

Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Lis­ten:

Set in a stu­dio flat in New York, 1930s

Cast: man Codge Craw­ford, woman He­len Fox.

In eco­nomic de­pres- sion, a cou­ple find them­selves in a cy­cle of de­pri­va­tion. They have rav­aged ap­pear­ances and the scene be­tween them is one of eter­nal rep­e­ti­tion where emo­tional con­tent is worn out and they live in the ac­cep­tance of some­thing hope­lessly in­al­ter­able.

‘In his end lies his be­gin­ning: al­most the last and first plays of Ten­nessee Wil­liams … are a must-see. Beau­ti­fully crafted per­for­mances, th­ese rare Wil­liams plays de­serve packed houses and Fox and Hound them­selves ac­co­lades for putting on… Wil­liams plays ... and prov­ing a spe­cial at­tune­ment to them all’ (Si­mon Jen­ner, Fringe Re­view, Brighton)
