Tay Bridge

On the night of Sunday December 28, 1879, the unthinkable happened

Battered by a ferocious storm, the Tay Bridge collapsed

Tay Bridge tells the poignant and unexpected stories of the suddenly interrupted passengers making the journey that night

Who were they?

Where were they going?

A powerful ensemble piece, Tay Bridge gives a whole new perspective on this famous bridge disaster

The Signalman
Winter 1919

Thomas Barclay is transported back in time by his memories of the night when he was the Signalman who sent the Edinburgh/Burntisland train onto the Tay Rail Bridge forty years before

Who is responsible when accidents occur?

Why do we need somebody to blame…even if it’s ourselves?

The Signalman: Winner, Best New Play at The Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland, 2020

REVIEWS
Peter Arnott’s brilliant vignettes about a 1879 railway bridge disaster imagine the lives and hopes of passengers stalked by death. [Arnott] pulls it off brilliantly thanks to vivid writing, political nous and thematic unity ~ ★★★★ The Guardian on Tay Bridge

Riveting… intense… a dark exploration of fear – and of the moment you realise your fears are real… wonderfully chilling ~ ★★★★★ Thom Dibdin, AllEdinburghTheatre.com on The Signalman
