He’s Done Nothing Wrong

Wednesday 9 June - Friday 1 October

35 years at the same desk just doesn’t prepare you for this!

Superannuated bachelor Albert’s lifestyle has collapsed into perfectly disordered chaos, his days defined by slothfulness and a grudging acceptance of his humble fate. Then modern business practices intrude, and everything changes… but should Albert change with it? His employers encourage him to embrace not only 21st century technology but also positivity and a sunny outlook.

But is there more to this than meets the eye?

Albert is wary. He’s right to be! Change is never easy, but should it be this exciting… or dangerous?

A delightful and hilarious new black comedy of (bad) manners!

He’s Done Nothing Wrong was first commissioned as a stage play by Comar and performed at Mull Theatre in 2018 including a well received tour of the Inner Hebrides.

This audio version has been commissioned by North East Arts Touring and funded by Creative Scotland and The Doric Board.

This performance was recorded during lockdown with cast and the production team rehearsing and recording remotely from their homes.

Age Suitability : 14+

Contains mild swearing  

This recording is dedicated to the memory of Mandy Eaglen

Mandy played Sally in the original stage version in 2018.

The three performers were briefly reunited via Zoom for the first read through in preparation for this recording. Unfortunately, Mandy’s health deteriorated quickly and she was unable to continue with the recording, sadly passing away before the final edit was made.

Mandy recorded the voice for Big Bessie as part of the original stage production for Mull Theatre and we are pleased that she can feature in our audio recording.

In her teens she attended the UK National Youth Theatre where she met Alec Innes. She was the baby of her year at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where she first became friends with Alasdair, and they have worked together many times over the years, particularly with Mull Theatre

She has enjoyed a wide and varied career in theatre all over the UK and overseas in pantomime, straight theatre and musicals as actor, writer and musician.

For the last 16 years she has been the on-train announcer for Scotrail – so if you get off at the wrong station, blame Fletcher!

Writer

George in pleased to be involved with this revised version of the play, and has enjoyed being reunited with Alasdair and Alec from the original production, but is greatly saddened by the tragic circumstances surrounding Mandy Eaglen’s absence. On a brighter note, he is incredibly pleased with Fletcher’s portrayal as Sally.

George has written a number of play’s since his first professional commission of Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea for the Glasgow based Play, Pie And A Pint. His next project to be unleashed to the public will be the screenplay for a short movie at the Doric Film Festival later in 2021, entitled The Feel At The Wheel.
