Stellar Quines’ production of The List in the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe won Best Production at the 2013 Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS), a Fringe First and a Herald Angel. Now, back by popular demand, The List will be re-staged for the 2013 Fringe, before undertaking a short tour to theatre venues across Scotland.
I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it. Even more so since she died. But I’m having trouble.
“Maureen Beattie [gives a] mesmerising and thrillingly unforgiving performance as a woman who cannot forgive herself.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
Set in Québec, The List is an award winning story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list. The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.
