The Land of Cakes archiveYour continuity man, the link person, that inner....Jimmy Spankie of the soul - what happens if you wake up one morning and he's NOTHERE? You know, the voice that says....Ah'm still hungry....there's that peh in the fridge....I'll get a cab hame, must mind and feed the it rubbish day the morn?.... well, what happens if it dries up? For Davie, Doag, Chris and Michelle and several of the other inhabitants on the ward at a large hospital, set in a city (with a boat), on the East Coast of Scotland, this is just what has happened. Nationally acclaimed Dundee poet and essayist Don Paterson tackles the question of losing your narrator, in this hilarious, brilliant and eventually shocking journey into the heart of darkness. Six different characters confront their past and future in a dance that encompasses both the personal and the universal - underscored by the haunting and atmospheric music of Gordon McPherson. Funded by the Scottish Arts Council's Scotland on Stage scheme.
Performers Rodney Matthew (Archie Goodfellow), John Ramage (Davie Stephen), Keith Fleming (Christopher Fisher), Andrew Clark (Doag Donaldson), Irene Macdougall (Mary Simbert), Meg Fraser (Michelle Nicol).
Author Don Paterson. Music Gordon McPherson. Company Dundee Rep Resident Company. Director Sandy Neilson. Director John Harris (music). Design Paul Wright.
