Jock Tamson's Bairns
You go to a club to watch some drag. The music is great. The performances are on point, the booze is flowing freely and the room is filled with laughter. Someone says something stupid. Possibly homophobic. Possibly sexist. Do you challenge them?
Exploring queer culture and the bystander effect, Jock Tamson’s Bairns is an award-winning immersive show created and presented by Civil Disobedience (Scottish Culture Awards ‘Ones to Watch’ finalists), where the audience is transported to an after hours gay bar and invited to speak their mind.
No topic is taboo, but a respect for your fellow humans is compulsory.
Mixing scripted elements of stand up, storytelling, cabaret and drag with a variety of guest performances and audience interaction, music, spoken word, theatre, and the punters take centre stage in this semi-improvised 90-minute show.
