Fresh from a successful Edinburgh Fringe 18 run The Bench will be touring from March 2019.
Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations he feels he’s failing to fulfil. For five minutes a day he finds a little solace and peace alone on an isolated bench.
Sandy is mourning the loss of his Maggie. The bench is his memorial to her memory. A shrine to his loss.
As both attempt to dictate the purpose of the bench, so begins an epic conflict of passive aggression. A conflict that will change the two of them, and will maybe finally answer the eternal question of - when is a bench not a bench?
A comedy about finding a safe place in a dangerous world, Written and performed by award winning Scottish writer Keir McAllister The Bench reunites the long standing comic partnership of Paul Sneddon (aka Vladimir McTavish/Bob Dolally) and Keir McAllister playing the parts of Sandy and Joe. Directed by Jo Jo Sutherland.
