Scottish Shorts (NHB Modern Plays) by various

A collection of nine very different short plays by three remarkable generations of Scottish writers, selected and introduced by Philip Howard, Artistic Director of the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, from 1996-2007. Mostly with casts of two or three, these plays are especially well suited to performance in studio theatres and at festivals.

  • Distracted by Morna Pearson
  • The Importance of Being Alfred by Louise Welsh

Snuff
Back from Iraq, Billy is in no mood for games. But Kevin is not just playing...
Anderson wrote and directed Snuff as part of the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh's 2005 Festival programme, for which he won the Arches Award for Stage Directors.

Rab's fortunes have declined along with the fishing industry in which he has worked all his life, but now he eyes a glimpse of hope.

Harm
A father and son wait in a new ‘self-harming unit'. As the clock ticks by, the father begins to pour out his guilt, anger and concern to his son.

The Basement Flat
Fiona and Stephen's tenant has become their landlord and their daughter has taken to living in the overgrown garden, which is creeping into the house as temperatures rise...

Distracted
Avid insect-collector Jamie Purdy and his disintegrating granny are new to the Morayshire caravan park where George-Michael Skinner and his young mother Bunny lives. But this is no ordinary mother and son relationship.
A darkly surreal and richly comic play from Morna Pearson, former member of the Traverse Theatre's Young Writers Group.
