A hoodie gang of Dundee Rep Youth Theatre Company were at City Quay yesterday to promote their latest production The Children, by one of Britain’s leading playwrights Edward Bond. In a unique collaboration Dundee Rep Youth Theatre Company and Dundee Rep Ensemble join forces in an innovative co-production later this month. Directed by Dundee Rep’s Associate Director Sarah Brigham and Dundee Youth Theatre Company member Lisa Williamson, The Children is the first major production between two of Dundee Rep’s award winning companies. Dundee Rep Ensemble members Irene MacDougall and Robert Paterson will tread the boards with the Rep Youth Theatre Company in a gritty tale of a teenager’s unquestioning loyalty to his mother which has fatal consequences. The Children will run from 17 to 19 January 2008, 40 years after the abolition of stage censorship in which Edward Bond was instrumental.
