About The Bench By K R Mcallister

A new comedy play by award-winning Scottish writer Keir McAllister.

Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations. For five minutes a day he finds peace alone on The Bench. Sandy is mourning the loss of his Maggie. The Bench is his memorial to her memory. So begins an epic conflict. A conflict that will change them both.

A comedy about safe spaces and the people that fill them... Waiting for Godot meets Still Game. Fully sold-out run, Edinburgh Fringe 2018.
