The Wake-Up Call

19:00, 25 Apr

The Wake-Up Call is a serious, urgent, and sharply funny theatre piece centred round the process of sleep. It embraces the restorative properties of a good night’s sleep, whilst acknowledging the increasingly unstable, insomniac qualities of a world that can’t seem to find any lasting peace.

Colin McGuire is a poet and performer, who has performed at countless cabarets and slam performances across Scotland and the UK. He was the winner of the Shore Poets Quiet Slam in 2014, the Luminate Slam 2015 and was a semi-finalist in the 2014 BBC Fringe Slam. He won the Out:Spoken Award 2018 in London for Poetry in Film and Poetry, for his poem The Glasgae Boys.
