Careful by Lynn Ferguson

The world premiere of Scottish singer-songwriter Horse McDonald's autobiographical play, Careful - an inspirational story of her triumph over adversity through music. There are times in life when you need to be careful...

Growing up gay in Lanark in the 70s; when the reward is half a pack of fruit pastilles; when the lady on the train tells you about the doctor you should meet. These would be some of those times, but you'll always be saved if you use your voice. Horse takes us on a journey from kelpie in the Brownies to one of Scotland's most celebrated singers and through those times when she had to be...Careful.

Written by Lynn Ferguson and directed by Maggie Kinloch, Careful is Horse McDonald's spellbinding debut play. The second half of the evening takes the form of a live audience Q&A with Horse and Maggie Kinloch and a mini set of her greatest hits, performed by Horse.

Recommended for ages 14 plus.
