About this Event

If you like intrigue, come and see Odd Productions characters sift through Unveiled Secrets to reveal surprising, humorous and uncomfortable truths.

First Steps (highly commended in the ScotRail/ Treading the Borders Brief Encounters Project) by West Linton’s Anita John (Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland)

The Other Nathan (2015 British Theatre Challenge long-listed) by retired Borders’ doctor, Oliver Eade, show how family members reveal long-hidden secrets with humour, conflict and heartache.

Give the Dog a Bone (Oliver Eade, also 2015 British Theatre Challenge long-listed), a middle-aged woman, driven to distraction by an ailing mother, is horrified by her sister’s revelation.

The Other Cat (Oliver Eade, Segora 2018 International Play Competition winner), more of a ‘did it happen?’ than a ‘whodunnit?’, is a dark-yet-playful take on Schrödinger’s famous cat.

This production supports Children1st. Suitable for 16+ years.

There will be an interval of twenty minutes. The show concludes at 10pm.

Kathleen Mansfield, artistic Director, worked with the National Theatre on the New Views’ project, and won the Robert Noble Award for her contribution to the arts in the community with her youth group, Stagecraft. Also a writer, she has published her debut novel, While God Was Sleeping.

Anita John is a poet, short story writer, playwright and Writer in Residence for RSPB Scotland Loch Leven. Her collection of short stories and poetry, Child’s Eye, won the 2013 Biscuit International Short and Flash Fiction competition. Since writing with Playwrights’ Studio Scotland, an extract from her play, Amy’s Dilemma, was performed at MacArts in 2018 and Stop Procrastinating, at the Borders Pub Theatre event in Selkirk in 2019.

Of Oliver Eade’s twelve published novels, Moon Rabbit (children) was a Writers’ and Artists’ 2007 New Novel Competition winner, The Kelpie’s Eyes won the 2018 Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Young Adult Novel Competition and A Single Petal (adult) won the 2012 Local Legend Spiritual Writing Competition. He has written twelve plays. The Gap, shortlisted for the Rowan Tree One Act Play Competition, went on tour in Scotland with Odd Productions in 2012. Pool Britannia, a farce, was short-listed for the 2015 Sussex Playwrights’ Competition.
