‘Song of Bernadette’ by Catriona Duggan is a gentle lyrical comedy about memory and the rituals of funerals.

Glasgow based Catriona is an English teacher who has written a few short stories. Her passion lies in the dialogue and movement and how it can draw you into another world, seeing it through different eyes. When not writing she has a great passion for pastel drawing and solo walking holidays.

‘I love the challenge of creating an engaging, believable scenario and characters within a relatively limited time frame and my aim is to entertain the audience while illustrating such dark themes of loss, isolation and prejudice.’ – Catriona Duggan

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.

These short-plays have been commissioned and developed through Cumbernauld Theatre’s national Scotland Short Play Award 2017
