IRVINE WELSH – A DECENT RIDE @ Gardyne Theatre
Apr 12 @ 19:30 – 21:30

Irvine Welsh photoBe one of the very first to get your hands on a copy of Irvine’s brand new novel A Decent Ride at this exclusive pre-publication event.

Fasten your seatbelts, because this is one ride that could certainly get a little bumpy…come and spend an evening with Irvine Welsh as he discusses his funniest, filthiest book yet.

Following the success of his Number One bestseller Skagboys, the prequel to Trainspotting, Irvine Welsh now celebrates an un-reconstructed misogynist hustler – a central character who is shameless but also, oddly, decent – and finds new ways of making wild comedy out of fantastically dark material, taking on some of the last taboos.

A Decent Ride sees the Scottish novelist, playwright and short story writer back on home turf, leaving us in the capable hands of one of his most compelling and popular characters, ‘Juice’ Terry Lawson, and introducing another bound for cult status, Wee Jonty MacKay: a man with the genitals and brain of a donkey.

A story about sequins, survival and Sonny & Cher

Directed and designed by Kenny Miller

Starring Julie Brown and Johnny McKnight

“A little darkness never did anyone any harm”

Peter and Lily have a secret. They love Sonny & Cher, their favourite celebrity couple of all time. With a string of hits in the 1960s and a successful American variety TV show in the 1970s, Sonny and Cher were mismatched, they were camp, they were good honest fun.

Decades later Peter and Lily are still listening to their records, still lip-syncing to their songs and practicing their comedy routines every evening. But beneath their obsession with sparkle and showmanship is a tragedy. And as dark truths start to pop their bubblegum act, it becomes clear not everything is quite as it seems…

A new play from Olivier award-winning playwright, Stef Smith, And The Beat Goes On is performed by Random Accomplice Artistic Directors, Julie Brown and Johnny McKnight and  directed by Horsecross Arts’ Associate Director Kenny Miller in a brand new creative partnership.

FiWobble  image high resFirst showing in 20 years for Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart. Over the past three decades or so, Jah Wobble has ploughed his own furrow as a prolific solo artist, as well as becoming a well-respected session musician, with genuine passion for Eastern and Global music.

He has worked with a diverse range of musicians, including Baaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Julianne Regan, Delores O’Riordan, Holgat Czukay, The Edge and Chaka Demus & Pliers.

The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met John Lydon and Sid Vicious at Kingsway College, London in 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’ after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar.

Lydon asked JW to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) in spring 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of ‘Metal Box’, Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL in mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career.

Wobble is joined on stage by drummer Marc Layton-Bennett and Martin Chung.
