Passing Places

Dundee Rep Ensemble
Passing Places

Passing Places is the story of small-town boys Alex and Brian, a Lada, a surfboard and a crate of Irn Bru. Desperate to leave their mundane lives and dead-end jobs in Motherwell behind them, they head out to find excitement and pleasure.

This hilarious and intense ‘road movie for the stage’ will take audiences on a wild ride through Scotland from Motherwell to the Highlands on a riotous journey of self-discovery brought vividly to life by the Dundee Rep Ensemble.

Passing Places is a high octane, fast-paced, contemporary Scottish comedy about the crazy, unpredictable escape of the urban doldrums.

This adrenaline-packed physical new production marks the 21st anniversary of this much-loved play by Stephen Greenhorn.
