A swashbuckling new comedy for libraries by a talented Milngavie writer is going to be performed on Thursday, March 20 in front of visitors.

This thought-provoking play by Lowri Potts - with the working title Lottery 2 - is going to be staged in Pollockshaws Library, Glasgow on Thursday, March 20 at 1.30pm and at The Library in Easterhouse at 6pm.

It tells the story of a librarian who has an encounter with a mysterious stranger while she is searching for the missing original map of Treasure Island.

This script-in-hand performance (actors read from a script in their hand) is a companion piece to Lowri’s first library play, Lottery, which toured East Renfrewshire schools and libraries in 2012.

Both plays explore the power of books and reading in our lives.

Lowri said: “Our libraries are now community hubs in which the unexpected can happen. Anything can happen in a library now!

“I hope this play will attract new people into their local library for a surprising theatrical experience that will make them see it in a new light.”

Lowri from Mains Estate in Milngavie has written for broadcast television, newspapers, magazines, interactive exhibitions and short films.

She has also run reading and creative writing clubs for children.

The play is suitable for all ages and has been made possible with the support of Creative Scotland. It will be followed by an open feedback session with Lowri, the director and actors.Free tickets available from the libraries. There will be a competition to find a name for the play.
