One-man play for Dalrymple

“Gotcha!”. a one man play written by the late Charles Barron, which promises to make audiences fall in love with a traffic warden, is coming to the Dalrymple Hall and Arts Centre on Saturday, February 23.

Based around prickly central character, Wee Ernie, “Gotcha!” aims to tell the good, the bad, and the ugly that make up modern day Scottish life.

The play humorously and boldly tackles sectarianism. alcohol, the conflict in Afghanistan, and independence. “Cotcha!” is as beautifully written as it is passionately and sensitively performed.

Actor Paul Hughson says: “This play guides us ruthlessly and unerringly towards what virtually defines our Scottishness - our resoluteness of character in the face of the most crushing adversity. Here’s tae us, wha’s like us, nae mony an theyre a deid! The play will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you richer for the experience.

“There are eight beautifully drawn characters to enjoy, with both comedy and pathos throughout. One of the beauties of this show is it’s simplicity - no explosions, no grand and extravagant lighting, and very few props.

“What it does have is a compelling story, which will hold the audience in it’s grip throughout the characters’ various journeys, and leave everyone with a nice warm glow upon it’s eventual and unexpected conclusion.”

“Gotcha!” is the product of a two man collaboration: Charles Barron, a North-east playwright and Paul Hughson, an actor who simply enjoys bringing the delights of theatre to the public.

Tickets are available from R & S Dyga, Broad Street, and the Dalrymple Hall & Arts Centre, both Fraserburgh. Doors open at 7:30pm and performance starts at 8pm, you are welcome to bring your own refreshments with you.
