Having celebrated 4 sell-out shows in The Gaiety Studio "The Price of a Fish Supper" is now going on tour as a one man play with "Rab" played by Prestwick`s very own, Ken O`Hara.
A moving play which is both tragic and funny "The Price of a Fish Supper" by local playwright Catherine Czerkawska is set somewhere on the Ayrshire Coast and explores the demise of the fishing industry as seen through the reminiscences of an ex-fisherman with an alcohol problem.

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. `The price of a fish supper`, as Rab knows all too well, is not just a case of hard economics. It`s also a story about the human suffering at the heart of this most hazardous of traditional occupations.
Contains some strong language and some themes of an adult nature.
Time: 7.30p.m. (Doors open 7pm)
