Count Me In

Visiting Company

ARCHIVE

In his latest one man show, Gary McNair investigates how we all live in a political system that none of us signed up to - we were just born into it. Presented as a work-in-progress by National Theatre of Scotland (with Citizens Theatre and Traverse Theatre) as part of Reveal.

Do we just have to like it or lump it? Or can we do something about it?

Have you ever stopped to really think about it? Not just left or right, red or blue, but how it came about in the first place and how the whole system works?

Make sure you’re there because every vote counts. Or does it?


With a rehearsed reading of…

Roman Bridge

By Martin Travers
A deadly epidemic is choking Europe leaving only the fit and lucky alive. Superstition and religious intolerance are rife. Somewhere in rural Lanarkshire Craw leads Catherine to an ancient stone bridge and the promise of a new life. Set in another Scotland, this is a play about survival, sacrifice, murder, and love - and asks if we can ever truly leave the past behind.

PRESS

Gary McNair’s Count Me In is a stand-up lecture that takes McNair’s self-confessed political ignorance as the starting point for an interactive power-point led trawl through the history of what passes for democracy.

The Herald

Like his 2010 Oran Mor hit Crunch, Gary McNair’s Count Me In explores the borderlands between theatre and the art of the public lecture, this time with an exploration of how McNair has reached 25 without knowing much - or anything at all, really - about the political system in which he lives.
