The Hard Man: Script Reading directed by Tam Dean Burn
Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand
Forty years old this year, McGrath’s examination of 'the most violent man in Scotland' is a landmark in Scottish theatre. Charting the rise and fall of a Glaswegian gangster, the play is based on the life of notorious criminal Jimmy Boyle, with whom McGrath collaborated on the script.
This reading of the play, to be directed by celebrated actor Tam Dean Burn, will put a new spin on Scottish gender and identity, with Scottish actress Kate Dickie as The Hard Man.
