With Kieran Hurley’s Rantin now over and the celebratory drinks consumed, it’s interesting to look at photographer Eoin Carey‘s original shots of the piece and let elements of the characters float back through your mind. Because the show presents a kind of tableau of living, ‘real-time’ characters – for example, we’re reminded that Miriam, a Palestinian wondering what she’s doing in such a cold, wet place as Glasgow, is on the no.44 trundling past Cottiers as we speak – it’s interesting to think of what they’d be doing now. Or, if we’re thinking in actual terms, how each character developed over the course of the run.
The reviews from The Herald, The Scotsman and Across the Arts are in: go to the Arches website to read all three. We’d love to know what you thought of the show – let us know in the comments box below.
