And also much anticipated, pal Gary Robertson’s play:

The Berries
The Berries
1970’s comedy set in the berry fields of Kirriemuir
RECREE8DUNDEE presentsThe Berries


This hilarious play is set in the summer of 1974 amid the berry fields of Kirriemuir, and follows a day in the life of four Dundee ‘nabblers’ (pickers) as they toil and graft under the watchful eye of the no-nonsense foreman Rab. In order to distract themselves from the hard work, they enter into uproarious bouts of raw working class humour where the language is as rough as a harlin wall. Each character is very unique and tells a story of the hard and colourful background of the streets where they live. However, will the day end in such cheery spirits?For anyone who ever hopped on a bus from the housing schemes of Dundee (or beyond for that matter), this is a play that will warm the hearts of ‘nostalgia’ while also bringing tears of laughter. This is a culture sadly long gone but ‘The Berries’ brings it all back just like it was yesterday.

Speaking of anticipation: look what just arrived!

Lots of news to come soon: in the meantime, here’s a wee recording made for the Record-a-Poem group started by the Poetry Foundation. You should record one, too!
