CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Other spaces: James Arnott Theatre, Andrew Stewart Cinema
T0649481135 The Pearl tells the story of Kino, a Mexican pearl diver whose life is transformed when he finds a pearl as 'perfect as the moon'. Kino believes that the pearl will make his dreams reality, he will marry Juana in the church and their son Coyotito will be educated. Obsessed by this dream, Kino is blind to the greed and fear the pearl arouses in his neighbours, and ultimately himself. Soon the dream of wealth and riches turns to dust when the pearl attracts only enemies, misfortune and grief.
The Pearl is a musically driven drama that retains Steinbeck's haunting simplicity and his deep understanding of humanity. Engaging, fresh and visually strong, this is the very best contemporary Scottish theatre for young people.
