About: The Life Of Stuff

“Because I don’t have any clothes on, do I? And you can’t batter somebody in your underpants.”

The Life of Stuff is a comic fly-on-the-wall snapshot of eight lives careering out of control. Small-time crook and aspirant pharmaceutical entrepreneur Willie Dobie's best-laid plans unravel when human nature takes its predictably unpredictable course.

Second Look at Theatre503 is a new strand of programming revisiting neglected hit plays of the last 30 years.

Artistic Director Paul Robinson will direct Theatre503’s first Second Look production, a revival of Simon Donald’s Evening Standard Award-winning play The Life of Stuff. A perfectly preserved comic snapshot of Edinburgh’s underworld, Simon Donald’s play premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh before transferring the Donmar Warehouse in 1993. The Life of Stuff will run at Theatre503 between 10 April and 4 May.

Dates: 10 April – 4 May (captioned performance 20th April)
Price: £15/£10 concessions

Directed by Paul Robinson
Design by James Perkins
Lighting Design by Johanna Town
Sound Design by Simon Slater
