Location: Lanark Memorial Hall

Cost: £12.00 / £10.00 concession

The Last YankeeTo celebrate the centenary of Arthur Miller, Rapture Theatre is producing one of the legendary writer’s last great plays.

Leroy Hamilton, a descendant of one of America’s founding fathers and “The Last Yankee”, lives a modest life as a carpenter and has eschewed the pursuit of the American Dream. This has estranged him from his wife, Patricia, who is in hospital and suffering from depression. Over the course of one day, Leroy and Patricia try to come to terms with Leroy’s choices and Patricia’s ‘illness’, and they take a tentative step towards reconciliation and a brave new future.

The Last Yankee reflects Miller’s themes of the devastating consequences for those who “fail” to achieve the mythical riches of the American Dream.

Supported by Creative Scotland and produced in association with The Beacon in Greenock, Rapture Theatre is proud that The Last Yankee will be part of the Scottish Mental Health Film and Theatre Festival 2015.

Humorous and ultimately uplifting, The Last Yankee is classic Miller that is not to be missed.

Singin' I'm No a Billy He's a TimScottish Theatre’s greatest success story of recent times.

Prepare for a night of laughs from a new season with new gags.

On the day of a crunch Old Firm clash, a fan of each team winds up sharing a jail cell from which their only hope of escape is cash raised by bets on the match to pay their fines. While taking turns to watch the action on a TV visible through their cell door, the pair bicker their way through every entrenched cliché of “Scotland’s shame” from religion to politics and national identity.

But aided by their kindly turnkey Harry - whose worries for his sick grandson help put their petty quarrels into perspective - they’re forced to reach a grudging understanding.

Des Dillon’s brilliant satire of 90-minute bigotry in Scotland and its inextricable connection with the nation’s two biggest football teams first scored critical acclaim at the Fringe in 2005, and has since been a near-constant fixture in theatres in Scotland.

Contains language which may offend.

MacBraveheart TWO: The Other Scottish Play

Date: 28 November 2015
Location: Lanark Memorial Hall

Cost: £12.00 / £10.00 concession

MacBraveheart TWORooted in the past of a dystopian pre-independence future - that means a minimalist set littered with industrial remnants and a broken toilet - Scotland’s greatest heroes, Wallace, Bruce and Burns, are tempted by their inner demons to confront their outer Hebrides. Lust, power, treachery, betrayal... sorry, have I just given away the ending?

This epic production exposes the true price of freedom - it’s not just something you can pick up in Lidl’s - whilst treading the fine line between dark, visceral theatre and disappearing up one’s own backside!

‘Differ’s script is fast-paced, punchy and foul-mouthed and keeps the laughs coming.’ The Scotsman

‘Brilliantly written and delivered with perfect comic timing. Hilarious.’ The List

‘Differ manages in well under an hour to lampoon Macbeth, Braveheart, Burns, Salmond, the independence movement, the language (‘You have to look at the bigger pilchard’) and, with rampant anachronisms and modern references, the whole genre of historical drama. An uninterrupted delight!’ The Stage

St Andrews Day Tea with Alastair McDonald

Date: 30 November 2015
Location: Lanark Memorial Hall

Cost: £6.00

St Andrews Day TeaNeeding no introduction to many, Alastair is one of Scotland's favourite showbiz personalities. A highly talented international performer, singer, song-writer, recording artist and broadcaster, he is equally at home in a jazz club, folk club, variety show, theatre or concert hall and is a well-known face on Scottish television. His concert programme can vary from a Scottish historical ballad to a humorous music hall ditty, and from a Gaelic lament to a hand clapping American Negro Gospel song. Not mere versatility for its own sake, but rather a genuine desire to share some of the very best songs and personal favourites.

Following his sell out appearance at Lanark earlier this year we invite you to come along and celebrate St Andrews Day with a tea and cake in the company of a Scottish showbiz legend!
