NATIONAL THEATRE of SCOTLAND
Eager to keep up with her fitness-freak mum, Fran has to get on with her training. The only problem is she’s stuck inside, and doing laps round her kitchen isn’t going to cut it. But with the power of imagination, and a little virtual motivation from her long-suffering coach Nick, she can escape the mundanity of her surroundings. Victoria Balnaves and John Scougall feature in a breathless new short from writer Àine King, directed by Sarah McCardie.
“I’m delighted to be part of Scenes for Survival. Telling stories is how we reassure each other that we’re not alone. We can’t sit side by side in the theatre right now, but we’re virtually holding hands and holding our breath in the dark, waiting to weep and cheer together when it’s over.“
ÀINE KING, WRITER
SCENES FOR SURVIVAL HARDSHIP FUND
The Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund is a fundraising campaign launched by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the McGlashan Charitable Trust and leading Scottish Theatre organisations, to raise money for those in the sector who have been hardest hit financially and are experiencing drastic economic and emotional hardship.
All donations to this fund will go directly to provide support for those most impacted within Scotland, be they actors, writers, creatives, musicians, technicians or any others within our industry.
A sector-wide call out with information and details of how to apply for support from the SFS Hardship Fund will be launched at the end of July 2020. The Federation of Scottish Theatre and the McGlashan Charitable Trust will ensure equitable distribution of the money raised.
We would be grateful if you would consider making a small donation to the Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund. Thank you for your support.
