Singing Far Into The Night
by Hamish MacDonald
Spanning three decades, this is a play about love, honour, courage and loss. Based on real lives and real events in Scotland and Russia.
Civil unrest, rioting and a society in turmoil as an impoverished working class feels disconnected from the roots of authority. Power is in the hands of the powerful; job losses, pay cuts and fear of poverty bring angry protests to the streets.
Glasgow 1931 – Connal MacNab, able seaman and naval boxing champion, comes home on leave to find Glasgow in the grip of political and industrial strife. At the centre of the turmoil Connal's brother Finlay and anarchist actress Erica Thule publish a revolutionary newspaper. All three get swept up by events and emotions, the consequences of which are unimaginable and profound on a personal and an international scale.
From the volatile streets of Glasgow, to Invergordon where the last mutiny in the Royal Navy took place, to Stalinist USSR and back to Scotland, from the 20s to the 70s, through riot, asylum, prison and gulag. A play about courage, identity, separation and loss.
