Brace Position by Rona Munro
Part of TalkFest in the Borders
A script-in-hand reading with Molly Innes and Robert Jack.
Sister and brother Maggie and Mark board a flight from Los Angeles to Glasgow, and quickly find it is ill-fated in more ways than one. While she battles her fear of flying, he wrestles with guilt at having lost touch with his family in Scotland after settling in California.
A seeming standard family drama, the play turns out to have a poignant and politically pertinent undertow.
A rare opportunity to hear Rona Munro's short play Brace Position.
"Formiddably well-crafted... thoroughly impressive... surprisingly moving." Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
