A DRAMATIC production of the classic Scottish novel - The Cone Gatherers - is coming to Glasgow’s Theatre Royal in September.
The story written by Robin Jenkins and adapted by Peter Arnott will be presented by Aberdeen Performing Arts and directed by Kenny Ireland.
We have teamed up with the Theatre Royal to offer a pair of tickets to see this wonderful show on Wednesday, September 26 at 7.30pm.
The Cone Gatherers is a haunting tale of good versus evil, and demonstrates the destructive power of envy and prejudice.
This classic Scottish novel tells the tale of two brothers gathering cones in a forest on a Scottish estate in order to replenish the trees felled for the war effort. Neil, and his hunchbacked brother Calum, lead happy and contented lives in these beautiful surroundings, completely detached from the destruction of the Second World War. However, their innocence and happiness is threatened by the dark, obsessive hatred of Duror, the gamekeeper and the deep prejudices of the class system of the time. The obsessions of Duror grow stronger throughout the story, building to a devastating climax.
Robin Jenkins’s greatest novel is brought to life by the creative team behind His Majesty Theatre’s two critically acclaimed productions, Sunset Song and The Silver Darlings, in a brand new adaptation by Scottish dramatist Peter Arnott.
