Get up close and personal this summer with Cumbernauld Theatre Company as we present a series of 15 minute modern plays closely examining contemporary life. Each night get intimately acquainted with 5 newly written micro-plays by 5 entirely different Scottish playwrights – but each play is performed by exactly the same multi-talented and versatile members of the cast.
