In-Process: Chasm

19:30, 07 - 08 Apr

Glasgow, January 2015.

Lionelle has decided to completely reinvent herself.

Laurie wakes up in hospital again – she’s hit yet another new low and can’t seem to stop repeating the same self-destructive patterns.

Marcia is newly engaged and should be happy, but she’s also just witnessed something terrible.

Taking as its focal point the 2014 bin lorry crash in George Square, Chasm delves into the lives of three women in Glasgow over the course of two days: Before and After. It explores how people are both brought together and pulled apart in times of crisis, and asks whether it’s possible to change ourselves, or if we are only ever changed by the things that happen to us.

This new play by Claire McCracken, first previewed at the Traverse Theatre last year as part of Wildfire Theatre’s Project #1.

 

Claire McCracken wrote her first play, Some Artist, under the mentorship of Peter Arnott at the Citizens Theatre in 2008. She was commissioned in 2012 to write His Name Was John, a short play for the Titanic centenary. Claire’s other work includes Reform, Goldilocks and the Three Gifts – a pantivity, Drive Time (Rebel Tree Theatre), Retrograde in Mercury (Mixtape; Tron Theatre Glasgow), The Ballad of Senga Rainie (Platform Glasgow), Flight Mode (Dawn Grenade Theatre), The Little Girl from 1945 (Luminate), The End of Things (Acting Up/Wee Theatres Glasgow) and Wee, Sleekit, Cow’rin, Tim’rous Beastie (One Day Creative).

 

IN-PROCESS is a brand new series of work-in-progress performances. Curated with artists we are actively developing work with and allowing a unique insight into the process of creating a new piece of theatre.
