'Standing Stanes' is a wry political comedy. It centres on a young man who, fired with entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to improve his community, endures a tireless journey as he comes face-to-face with the bureaucracy of larger-than-life, verging on cartoonesque officials. Set in the 1980s when it was originally penned, it has a charming retro appeal. There are many similarities between the UK political and economic landscape at that time and today; recession, austerity, unemployment, a Tory (led) Government. The play also talks of the Cold War between the East and West and though that no longer exists, there is a potential battle looming in the UK between North and South as the country debates the issue of Scottish independence.
