To those who have already registered their interest in taking part in June’s Shindig, we have extended the date by which you must have your cast, director and drama piece chosen by to midnight on Tuesday 24th (this Tuesday). This gives participants one last workshop in which to make friends and tie their team together. This is a very strict deadline and the director of each piece must email Brian at:email@example.com with all relevant info to secure his/her group’s spot. In the interest of fairness everyone registered to take part must be cast first and only after this may any late arrivals be cast. N.B. make sure that all cast members have registered for the shin-dig, closing date was Midnight 8th May (i.e. refer to the list of registered members for the shin-dig)

Ecstasy, Three Tales of a Chemical Romance is Irvine Welsh’s most high profile work since Trainspotting. Released in the wave of publicity surrounding the film, it consists of three unconnected novellas. Adapted by Kevin Wyatt and directed by David McGowan, No Drama Theatre brings the third chapter, The Undefeated to the stage in the Teachers’ Club, Parnell Square from the 17th to the 21st of May.
Resonant of many of Welsh’s other works, the story is set in Edinburgh against the backdrop of the early 90′s rave scene. It can be described as a sly, subtle romance between Heather, a young woman dissatisfied with the confines of her suburban life and Lloyd an aging club goer.
Edinburgh born Welsh is an acclaimed and often controversial contemporary novelist, best known for his novels Trainspotting and The Acid House. His work is often characterised by raw Scottish dialogue and a brutal depiction of the realities of Edinburgh life. To date, Welsh has published seven novels and three collections of short stories as well as writing and directing several screenplays. Shooting for a film version of Welsh’s Ecstasy, Three Tales of a Chemical Romance has also begun and it is due for release later this year.
