Ballantrae Theatre - The Price of a Fish Supper
Friday 11 May
"The Price of a Fish Supper" is the sharply unsentimental story of an ex-fisherman with an alcohol problem.
Set somewhere on the Ayrshire coast, the play explores the demise of the fishing industry as seen through the reminiscences of the central character.
Rab, like a modern day "ancient mariner", relates his riveting story of love, rivalry and disaster. His personal decline has paralleled the wider economy of the place where he lives and the coast from which he once worked. This one-man play is at once tragic and funny, holding out, by the end, the faintest glimmer of hope for the future.
The performance starts at 7.30pm in Ballantrae Community Centre, 36 Main Street, Ballantrae, KA26 0N.
Tickets - £10 (£9 concessions) - from www.thegaiety.co.uk or telephone 01292 288235. Age recommendation 16+
