The Wake-Up Call

19:00, 25 - 27 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.
