NESTS, an innovative theatre performance which explores how society treats the young and vulnerable, is coming to Stirling’s Macroberts Arts Centre this month.

The play tells the story of a frightened boy on the run with a crow, who both meet a man living alone in a caravan on the outskirts of society.

Their meeting begins a surreal journey where magical realism meets real-life media broadcast.

Writer Xana Marwick said: “NESTS has been a long labour of love, inspired by my own life experiences and those of many of the young people I have met over the last 15 years.

“When I first worked with young people who were experiencing poverty, or who needed extra support because the adults around them were too sick or wrapped up in their own lives to take good care of them, I was shocked by some of what I saw and heard.

“In 2012, when I became a parent myself, NESTS came pouring out of me as a response to all this and a cry-out into the world on behalf of all the children who should have someone looking out for them, but don’t.”

NESTS is a co-production between Frozen Charlotte and Stadium Rock, and is brought to life by actors Ashleigh More and David McKay.

The performance is aimed at adults and children over the age of 12.

NESTS will be coming to Stirling on Friday, September 21, showing at 7.30PM
