David Overend (Other), Rob Drummond

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Media darling and Scottish national treasure Roberta Bishop chairs an independence debate featuring Conservative MP Sir Edward Hammer, the SNP’s Sarah Bailey, journalist Petra Lang and controversial comedian Bruce Carrick.

In the audience, Wallace waits patiently to ask his question…

So begins act one of Rob Drummond’s latest work-in-development; a theatrical panel debate where audience participation is encouraged but not mandatory. Audiences are invited to question the panel or just sit tight and see what twists and revelations emerge from the debate.

Over the course of three acts, Wallace asks how and why we make decisions; where our principles come from; what our history means to us; and why independence and identity matter, if indeed they really do.

Wallace is a staged work-in-development, co-commissioned by National Theatre of Great Britain and The Arches. Developed with support from National Theatre Studio.
