early retirement. To make matters
worse he discovers that Ethel, his ex,
who he hasn’t seen in 20 years, will
be coming later tonight. Politics, of
course, and what to do about the No
vote, Corbyn… And that weird thing
about rising into the heavens.
It puts him in storytelling mood.
Bob’s a raconteur. He tells 3 more
stories about ascensions, all the
while trying to decide what to do
about Ethel, and whether his life’s
work is done. Is he finished?
In his final speech – the story of an
entire country ripping itself from
the earth and rising up – he comes
to terms with his, and his country’s,
past, and future.
A solo play performed by David
Hayman, written by Chris Dolan,
directed by David Hayman Jnr.
Resurrection is a sequel to The
Pitiless Storm performed at the
Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh Fringe
2014, as part of a 45-date sell-out
Scottish tour.
Coming soon…

Arts Development
Consisting of a number of Development Officers in
various art forms, the Arts Development Section’s
role is to develop a variety of activities and projects
which make the arts more accessible to the
local community. This is done through providing
everything from courses, projects, workshops and
master classes as well as one-off activities and
events, such as theme days, summer schools,
concerts and festivals.
Our wide ranging programme of arts classes and
courses in art forms including music, drama, dance,
contemporary visual arts, new media and traditional
arts and crafts is designed to accommodate all needs,
ages and abilities and runs in three terms enrolling in
January, April and September each year.
The Arts Development team not only regularly work
together with national arts companies to provide
outreach programmes to support the events and
performances within the venues but also work with
local organisations and groups on community-based
projects providing advice and support for community
groups with things such as training, constituting a
voluntary arts group, how to access funding and how
to develop projects.
