Grid Iron in association with Platform, Easterhouse
Multi-award winning Scottish theatre company Grid Iron, in association with Platform, Easterhouse, bring you a hilarious road movie for the stage. In 2006 Martin McCormick flies across the Atlantic to be reunited with a woman he had fallen passionately in love with, a Californian Girl. But she’s changed. Completely. She’s in Indiana now, not California. With her step-mum who hates the British. Almost as soon as he’s arrived he’s on the road again, penniless and desperate to get home to Scotland in one piece.
Performed by Martin himself with Jess Chanliau (who plays some twenty-five parts) and live foley by David Pollock, South Bend is a tale of hope, of love, of a small country and a vast one, of a good Samaritan and a relationship gone bad.
“Grid Iron line up effortless, unpretentious, penetrating modern classics one after another.”
“Grid Iron is not just a Scottish national treasure but one of the companies that has shaped
British theatre over the last 20 years.” The Guardian
“Grid Iron, one of Scotland’s boldest and most influential groups of the last two decades.”
