Other Side of The River

In Motion Theatre in Association with One Ren Funded by Future Paisley


Other Side of The River

A new play by Lisa Nicoll

With musical direction and composition by Michael Hill

Other Side of The River is a universal story that is inspired by Ferguslie Park, Paisley which incorporates food, song, bingo and karaoke!

Journalist Beth enters the fictional town of Ailm-which has been told it is one of the worst towns to live in by the media in the hope she will find the story that will make her feel successful and noticed.

She is welcomed to the town by extended family Jo, Andy, Meg and Dan who despite many obstacles in their life know how to pull together and get on with things.

When the van which delivers food to the community and hosts mobile bingo nights breaks down the town must find a solution to get them back on the road again.

While Jo, Andy, Meg & Dan plan their charity fundraiser with food, song, bingo and karaoke, journalist Beth’s questioning begins to find out their secrets

Food will also be served on arrival made by the local communities where the play is being shown following on from sets of cooking workshops that have been held for the people of the towns.

Age recommendation: 12 years +
