T in the Shed

Subtitled 'The story of men in Scottish men's shed so far...' this play by Matt Dunn performed by 3in1 Theatre had a sell-out run earlier this year in August at the Black Box Theatre, Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh. Matt wrote it with men who go to men’s sheds throughout Scotland including St Andrews, Glenrothes, Galashiels, Leith, Barrhead and Stonehouse. Here's what it's all about:
"This play tells the story of what is a men’s shed and why is men’s shed so important. We follow Harry, Mike, Jim and Simon, four men later in life who decide to change the hand they have been dealt and start their own men's shed. This play is about a total loss of community and four men’s fight to bring that community back to life as they contend with their own issues of; isolation and loss of purpose. Life has changed and so must they. ‘If we want it, nobody is going to do it for us…’"
It's now been made available in book format and you can buy a copy from the 3in1 Theatre site here.
