Hi Kathleen, I have spoken to the Director and currently there are no definite plans, but there's a possibility of touring the show in 2014. Thanks, Cecilia

This looks great, have you any plans to tour the production to other areas of Scotland or to schools?

Hi Willy, yes, the very same. If you're ever in doubt, select "Cast and Creative Team" and you'll find the writer of the play as well as the translator, actor and director credits
