Summary note
"Frances Poet's play Still is a drama about life, loss and joy as five Edinburgh souls stagger towards each other and are transformed. It was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, on 2 August 2021. The play is set in multiple locations in Edinburgh. Gaynor's got to leave the house if she wants to meet her newborn grand-daughter. Stillness has been the only way to deal with her chronic pain but now it's time to move. Gilly's not sure what her dying dad is feeling but she knows, from experience, that it's best not to Google it. Dougie and Ciara have spent their last NCT class preparing for the labour pains ahead, but now it's time for one last night on the dance floor. And then there's Mick, who wakes up on Portobello Beach in the early hours of the morning with two gold rings in his pocket. He can't remember what they're for but he knows it's something important. He'll work out what if only his old pal, Pat, will stop buying him drinks. The premiere production was directed by Gareth Nicholls and designed by Karen Tennent. It was performed by Martin Donaghy, Molly Innes, Oguz Kaplangi, Gerry Mulgrew, Mercy Ojelade and Naomi Stirrat"--About the play.
