The whole spectrum of human nature is laid bare on the stage at Woodend Barn soon in the form of some cracking comedy and delectable dance.

Under the banner Double Nugget, Random Accomplice brings two bitingly funny stories to delight the audience on Friday, March 9 ( 7.30pm).

Mary Massacre is set against the backdrop of a local fair. Two strangers meet at a candyfloss stall and share a light-hearted secret and a love of physics, but underneath hides a tale of deceit, loss and betrayal.

Seven Year Itch is for anyone who harbours murderous thoughts about colleagues and weaves around the true story of the brutal slaying of an office worker in America interwoven with the delightfully flamboyant tales of two Glasgow office workers. As a set, the two comedies mirror aspects of the darker side of human nature.

Dominated by the solid wall backdrop, itself the representation of division or containment against which the dancers react, PUSH is the new performance choreographed by Christine Devaney of award-winning company Curious Seed.

The place and time remain nameless but the production highlights the despair and fear felt when ordinary people do not feel safe within their surroundings.

PUSH’s mix of live cello playing with recorded original music, video projections and poetic text alongside Devaney’s powerfully evocative choreography promises a remarkable evening on Thursday 15 March. Woodend Barn are offering a ‘buy six get two free’ for groups for this performance.
