About this show

A young man arrives in a dying city with seashells in his pockets. He doesn't know who he is, or how he got here. He goes by the only name he can think of: Lanark. This theatrical re-imagining of Alasdair Gray's seminal work takes us from the Dragon Chambers to the Cathedral of Unthank, from post-war Glasgow School of Art to the sinister underground Institute, from the heavenly city of Provan to the hellish Elite Caf?, combining science fiction, realism, fantasy, and playful storytelling.
