MESS is coming to Easterhouse from 13th - 17th July. Brought to us by Tenterhooks and Scottish Theatre Producers, the performance is delivered outdoors with social distancing measures in place and adheres to all Covid restrictions.

MESS is a bold, playful and emotionally engaging performance for young audiences (age 5-18) with complex additional support needs, and their families.

MESS tells the story of how an ordinary day in the life of a team of caretakers turns unpredictable when, for the first time ever, they attempt to clean a space that has people in it.

MESS is non-verbal, funny, musical and sensory. It’s a live-action cartoon full of suspense and surprise.

Performances are delivered outdoors, onsite at Platform at The Bridge in the main venue car-park on the following days + times:

Tuesday 13th July at 3pm

Wednesday 14th July at 11am, 12.30pm and 3pm

Thursday 15th July at 11am, 12.30pm and 3pm
