About this show

From Helensburgh to Downing Street and back again. Two gripping stories trace the paths of personal and political destruction. An exhilarating double bill of short plays from two of Scotland's greatest playwrights, David Greig and David Harrower. The Letter of Last Resort - London, after the next election. In Whitehall the newly elected Prime Minister struggles to write a letter to be opened only if Britain is devastated by a Nuclear strike. But, in an unimaginable future where the only safe place on the planet is under the sea in a submarine, what should her orders be? Good With People - I always felt stupid saying something intelligent here. Evan returns to Helensburgh, west Scotland; home to the nation's Nuclear defence programme and once a thriving holiday resort. A place he's been trying to avoid. Haunted by his past and afraid of his future, he finds Helen working at the Seaview Hotel. From the same place, but worlds apart, their evening fizzes and fuses. Will there be fallout?
