Suitable for Adult Groups
Nancy McPherson's acclaimed comedy/drama about a couple who meet at a recycling bank after a split-up. Please note that this play is available in Scots and in Standard English. "This is a beautifully written, thoroughly absorbing and very clever piece." - Scene
Linda and Danny bump into each other at a recycling area. As they debate what is to be discarded or salvaged, it emerges that they are at a clearing point in their fragile relationship. The dynamic and spark in their relationship gives rise to some sharp humour, but underneath this they are struggling with the confusions, chaos and disappointments of life and gender role expectations. The casual and brief intervention of two strangers curiously helps them to focus, and in the end they have cleared enough space to move on.
