Men Should Weep

29 November 2017 | Tagged: Senior School, Events

This year's Senior Drama Production saw fifteen pupils perform ‘Men Should Weep’, a moving play depicting the harrowing effects of poverty-stricken life in the East Side of Glasgow during the depression of the 1930s.

The story portrayed a matriarch who holds together a Glaswegian family of seven children in a tenement slum, coping with unemployment, TB, errant children, prying neighbours and a 'difficult' sister. Bleak, forthright and without sentimentality, the play was nevertheless tempered by a spirited sense of humour as well as a final note of optimism for the future.

The performances took place over three suitably murky nights last week, with audiences thoroughly enjoying captivating performances from all involved.

The cast were: Eilidh Gilchrist as Lizzie, Lauren MacDonald as Granny, Ciara McCusker as Lily, Zoe Robertson as Maggie (all S6), Angus Barrett as John, Neve Ferguson as Isa, Annabel Mooney as Jenny, Kai Ross as Alec, Emma Bulloch, Millie Haldane and Millie Rayner as Neighbours, Rhys Evans and Sam Morton as Removal Men (all S5), Ben Taylor (S1) as Earnest and Greta Stakis (Transitus) as Edie.
