★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN ★★★★ THE GUARDIAN ★★★★ THE STAGE
Dundee Rep Ensemble returns to the stage to re-open the Rep in a wildly imaginative and brilliantly funny new play by two-time Fringe First Award-winner John McCann, directed by Finn den Hertog with movement direction by Vicki Manderson, set and costume design by Jen McGinley and music by Andrew Wasylyk.
Dundee is frozen in time. A teenage girl is losing faith in her family, her brother is losing his grip on reality and their granny is trying desperately to hold things together…but are they really going to take advice from a couple of seagulls?
A fantastical voyage of discovery through Dundee’s empty streets and hidden past, Wings Around Dundee invites its audiences to look again at stories we take for granted. A whirlwind, magical-realist adventure that is funny, astutely political and deeply moving, Wings Around Dundee is the perfect way to welcome Dundee Rep audiences back into the theatre.
