Reveal 2012 showcases new Scottish theatre
Highlights include Mexican reality TV, a Gaelic divorce and London riots performed by puppets
Following on from last year’s successful inaugural Reveal Season, The National Theatre of Scotland, in association with the Citizens’ Theatre, present Reveal 2012, a season of new work by up and coming and diversifying artists, many of whom have been supported by the National Theatre of Scotland through their Bank of Scotland Pioneering Partnership.
The artists who were connected to the 2011 New Directors Programme and Artists on Attachment schemes’, benefited from the Bank of Scotland Emerge Fund, a new investment created to support the next stage of their creative development. This funding from Bank of Scotland allowed the National Theatre of Scotland to work with this selected group of artists to develop their ideas and to showcase them to both the wider theatre industry and the public. Each artist will show work at a different stage of the creative process, from small scale productions to work in progresses and rehearsed readings. Reveal 2012 will also offer a group of young artists the opportunity to share the seed of a new idea at one of two scratch performances.
Taking place at the Citizen’s Theatre between the 3rd and 13th May, the season includes works by Martin Travers, Amanda Gaughan, Alan Bissett, Amanda Monfrooe, Ross MacKay, Catriona Lexy Campbell, Alan McKendrick.
