Civic Conversation

 In partnership with Queen Margaret University we have taken the opportunity to host a one woman play about alcohol and the role it play in the lives of many young women.

The play called Acceptance is written and performed by Liz Nicoll and a short extract can be viewed at


This is a play that touches upon many of the issues that affect women like Scarlet today and conveys in a genuine and meaningful way the emotional and social dilemmas and the pressure people in today’s society face to fit in.” David Shaw – Glasgow Council on Alcohol

“….. a clever piece of writing and a heart-tugging story consummately performed; it’s everything one-woman theatre can, and should be.”    Three Weeks Publication Edinburgh Festival 2008.

 Venue:         Tranent Town Hall, May 14th  2009, 1.30pm – 3pm

Venue:            Brunton Hall, May 20th 1.30pm – 3pm
