“What if we go out in the wilderness, alone, guideless and we meet the Devil? And what if he offers us a city? What then, Joe?”
In Govanhill on the southside of Glasgow, it’s mid-summer and the heat drives people into their homes. Tensions build as fantasy and reality are confused.
A sleep-deprived new parent and his wife, who is community minded, both fight for their neighbourhood, but their lives breakdown. At the same time, a boy who attends a private school, a pair of young missionaries, a performance artist (with a split personality), and a dishonest property manager, are all forced to look at themselves and find their inner monsters.
Directed by Dominic Hill, Fever Dream: Southside is a surreal comic thriller. A major new play from Glasgow writer Douglas Maxwell who wrote the award winning play Decky does a Bronco.
“one of the finest plays to emerge from a Scottish working class story in the last ten years” – The Scotsman on Decky Does a Bronco.
