The 306: Day • Thursday 25 May 2017
National Theatre of Scotland, Perth Theatre, and Stellar Quines, present
The 306: Day
Written by Oliver Emanuel, composed by Gareth Williams, directed by Jemima Levick
1917. The war across the channel rages on. In Russia, a revolution is turning the social order on its head. And at home in Britain, there are women fighting their own battle. Rents are rising. Food is scarce. And war work can be deadly.
Inspired by real events and first-hand accounts, The 306: Day follows the lives of three ordinary women fighting to be heard above the clamour of World War 1.
Nellie Murray works at a Glasgow munitions factory but is also a member of the Women’s Peace Crusade.
Struggling to cope after the execution of her husband for cowardice, Gertrude Farr has a young daughter and doesn’t know where to turn.
Mrs Byers waits. She waits and waits for news of her son. He ran off to join the army at the beginning of the war. She prays for word of his safe return.
The 306: Day is a new piece of theatre about staying silent and speaking out, fighting for peace and giving into violence. It tells the forgotten story of three women in wartime and their struggle to survive in a world that won’t listen.
The 306: Day is co-commissioned with 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and is the second part of the 306 Trilogy, following last year’s performances of The 306: Dawn.
Tickets Dundee City Box Office.

“Some Guys Have All The Luck” • The Rod Stewart Story • Friday 26 January 2018
Hit Show Returns To Caird Hall…
Due to amazing demand Some Guys Have All The Luck returns to the Caird Hall Dundee on Friday 26 January 2018
Some Guys Have All the Luck celebrates the career of one of rock’s greatest icons, Rod Stewart – from street busker to international superstar.
Star of the Show Paul Metcalfe says:
“Rod Stewart’s life has been graced with significant strokes of luck along the way and I’ve picked out some of these as key moments in the new show. Rod has made the most of this luck combining it with hard graft and talent and I feel as lucky to be performing his current songs as much as the classics like Maggie May.”
Paul Metcalfe delivers both an authentic and charismatic performance as Rod Stewart; from the distinctive vocals to the swaggering showmanship and sheer fun that has made Rod one of the most loved performers of all time.
The musical show “Some Guys Have All the Luck” charts Rod Stewart’s career chronologically and highlights some of the significant strokes of luck which helped the rock legend during his stellar career. The show also features songs from Rod Stewart’s time with “The Faces” as well as a full concert production in the second half of the show with classic hits including Maggie May, Baby Jane, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, Sailing and You’re in My Heart.
We all make our own luck, but some guys really do have it all!

Complete with authentic costumes and iconic stage set projections, the show is invited to perform at festivals and theatres all over the world.
“We pride ourselves on doing the music justice,” says Laurence Knight, who plays Bowie in the show. “We aim to faithfully recreate the sound and vision that made Bowie’s songs so timeless.”
Laurence is a vocalist, actor and multiinstrumentalist who has performed all round the world during the past eighteen years of touring. With performances at the official “David Bowie Is” Exhibition at The V&A London, The Royal Albert Hall and alongside The Cure, Boney M, Roy Wood and the Boomtown Rats.

The life of the Starman with a multi decade spanning career, the late, great David Bowie is recognised as one of the UK’s most influential and radical musical exports. His first hit was the song “Space Oddity” in 1969. The original pop chameleon, Bowie became a fantastical Sci-Fi character for his breakout Ziggy Stardust album.
He later co-wrote “Fame” with Carlos Alomar and John Lennon which became his first American № 1 single in 1975. 1980 saw the release of ‘Scary Monsters’, an album that looked to update Bowies original ‘Space Oddity’. Three years later saw the release of ‘Let’s Dance’.
The 90s saw Bowie create a side project with musicians Reeves Gabrels, Tony Fox Sales and Hunt Sales known as ‘Tin Machine’ which went on to sell two million albums.
Bowie sadly passed away on January 10, 2016 much to the dismay of his fans and those he had influenced throughout the years.
Join the Bowie Experience for a celebration of true legends amazing career…
