    Breaking the Ice By Kieran Lynn
    Director Tony Cownie
    Tue 4 – Sat 8 Oct, 1pm; Fri 7 Oct, 1pm & 7pm

    The Arctic is in danger and the only thing that can save it is bureaucracy – but the man with the speech to do it has spilt yogurt on his suit, left his speech at the breakfast buffet and been kidnapped by militant activists. Can he make it back to the podium before it’s too late?

    Mischief By Ellie Stewart
    Director Gerda Stevenson
    Tue 11 – Sat 15 Oct, 1pm; Fri 14 Oct, 1pm & 7pm

    Ronnat and Brigid live alone on a tiny island where they trade with the monastery across the water. The delicate equilibrium of their lives is threatened when a man washes up on the beach seeking work and shelter.

    Walking On Walls By Morna Pearson
    Director Rosie Kellagher
    Tue 18 – Sat 22 Oct, 1pm; Fri 21 Oct, 1pm & 7pm

    When Claire was little she’d pretend she was Superman. Now she’s an adult who hates the litter, graffiti and drugs in her town and is on a mission to clean up. Tonight, however, she might find more than she bargained for.

    One Thinks Of It All As A Dream By Alan Bissett
    Director Sacha Kyle
    Tue 25 – Sat 29 Oct, 1pm; Fri 28 Oct, 1pm & 7pm

    London, 1967. Pink Floyd have just released their debut album. But the behaviour of frontman Syd Barrett has become increasingly erratic. Is he having a drug-induced breakdown? Or is it all an elaborate joke?

    A co-production with Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival. Presented in association with Traverse Theatre and Aberdeen Performing Arts.

    Dr Johnson Goes To Scotland By James Runcie
    Director Marilyn Imrie
    Tue 1 – Sat 5 Nov, 1pm; Fri 4 Nov, 1pm & 7pm

    Told with wit, whisky and song, this sequel to last year's sell-out A Word with Dr Johnson is a literary adventure that asks, ‘Who owns language?’
