By Stephen Greenhorn | Directed by Andrew Panton | Dundee Rep Theatre & Citizens Theatre | April - May 2018
Federation of Scottish Theatre Assistant Director: Jordan Blackwood
Passing Places is the story of small-town boys Alex and Brian, a Lada, a surfboard and a crate of Irn Bru. Desperate to leave their mundane lives and dead-end jobs in Motherwell behind them, they head out to find excitement and pleasure.
This hilarious and intense ‘road movie for the stage’ will take audiences on a wild ride through Scotland from Motherwell to the Highlands on a riotous journey of self-discovery brought vividly to life by the Dundee Rep Ensemble.
Passing Places is a high octane, fast-paced, contemporary Scottish comedy about the crazy, unpredictable escape of the urban doldrums.
This adrenaline-packed physical new production marks the 21st anniversary of this much-loved play by Stephen Greenhorn.
I was supported by a Federation of Scottish Theatre Assistant Director bursary to work with Andrew Panton on Passing Places, as well as be involved in Dundee Rep's 2018/19 Season Launch.
Throughout the Passing Places process, I was interested in exploring the relationship between director and movement director, as well as developing further skills in creating work for bigger stages. Bringing Stephen Greenhorn's road movie for the stage to life for its 21st anniversary was very rewarding, strengthened by the laughter and talent of our brilliant cast, crew and creative team.
