Caught the superb THE LIST Stellar Quines production at the Barn on Tuesday night. Superbly written, an amazing one woman tour de force...by Maureen Beatty ........addressing powerful issues that were immediately recognised at a visceral level by the many appreciative women of mature years who largely made up the audience...........catch it if u can on its Scottish tour. ..........Was not surprised to learn it had received the Scottish Critics Choice Award for 2012.
