We are delighted to have returned to East Coast FM 107.6 community radio, https://eastcoastfm.co.uk/ after a break since 2013, to give performances currently every last Thursday of the month at 9 am, with a different script each month. You can listen in through the internet via the link above, or through your FM radio in house or in your car on ecfm 107.6. Watch out for upcoming links on my website to voice recorded snippets from these short, fun plays in Scots dialogue demonstrated by The Three Craws coming from different regions in Scotland, such as East Lothian, Fife and near Aberdeen where Doric dialect originates from. Narration is in plain English.
If you would like to have a go at being a Craw, or indeed purchase scripts and/or merchandise for an in-school performance to promote the use of Scots language, and find out about local and national history, events and traditions in a fun way, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org . Suggested age range, 8 upwards, or from P4.
I am also open to commissions, reference Play 9 which was built around local knowledge provided to me by generations of mining families of school children at Cockenzie Primary School to mark the demolition of the power station chimneys, or ‘lums’. It was a real thrill to receive the information, as well as drawings by some of the children.
Here is the current list of available plays. Again, if you would like your school or community group to put on any of the plays, please contact me on the link above.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.
