Grid Iron in association with Platform

Multi-award winning Scottish theatre company Grid Iron, in association with Platform, bring you South Bend; a hilarious road movie for the stage.

In 2006 Martin McCormick flies across the Atlantic to be reunited with a woman he had fallen passionately in love with, a Californian Girl. But she’s changed.  Completely. She’s in Indiana now, not California.  With her step-mum who hates the British. Almost as soon as he’s arrived he’s on the road again, penniless and desperate to get home to Scotland in one piece.

Award-winning playwright and actor Martin performs his true(ish) story himself with Jess Chanliau and live foley by Paisley-based composer and musician David Pollock.

South Bend – A tale of hope, of love, of a small country and a vast one, of a good Samaritan and a relationship gone bad.
