Happy Days Alison Peebles leads in Beckett’s classic, which sees a woman buried to her waist in sand, reflecting upon a grim and rapidly ebbing life with surprising optimism and humour. Dominic Hill’s production offers another chance to revisit a much-loved piece. Dundee Rep, until Sat 9 Jun.
The Wonderful World of Dissocia Anthony Neilson’s legendary festival hit rounds off its NTS sponsored tour. A funny and ultimately very moving exploration of a woman’s internal and external struggle against mental illness, this is a must see. Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, Wed 6-Sat 9 Jun.
Cyprus Peter Arnott’s rewritten version of his 2005 play is part country house mystery and part political story. Two former colleagues in the British espionage world meet on an island off the West Coast; the daughter of one of these adds to tensions that are both sexual and ideological. Tron Theatre, Glasgow, Tue 12-Wed 13 Jun, then touring.
Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London makes its first ever tour with this classic of youthful love and troubled teens. Edward Dick’s production promises a grittier than usual approach to the story. University of Glasgow East Quadrangle, Tue 19-Sun 24 Jun.
The Trouble with Asian Men Tamasha returns with this rowdily humorous, often interactive piece which combines various verbatim interviews with people of all races, classes and genders and is performed by an all male cast. Citizens’ Theatre, Glasgow, Tue 12-Sat 16 Jun.
