Numpties On The Tay performed by Rep Young Company 1
Captain Kidd’s treasure. Where could it be? Is it possible that it’s buried here in Dundee? You may recognise the names but the stories are very different as we reimagine some of the Dundee Worthies as Pirates. Join the likes of Bruin ‘The Polar Bear’ Jones, Grissel Jaffray, The Mars Boys and the most feared pirate of them all; Muggy Shaw in this swashbuckling adventure BUT watch out for the seagulls.

Platform 7 performed by Rep Young Company 2
Step into a world where the rhythmic heartbeat of a train station becomes the backdrop for serendipitous encounters and fleeting connections. Witness strangers brush shoulders, find similarities and create friendships as diverse lives converge under one bustling roof. From the hurried commuter to the staff who spend their days at the station each character has a story waiting to unfold.  

Join us on this journey where the echo’s of laughter, chatter of pigeons and public conversations fill the air of the station, exploring the transient nature of human interactions in the most unexpected of places. From the platform to the coffee stand, every corner holds a tale of its own and embraces the beauty of chance encounters and celebrates the rich tapestry of human connection.
