0 High Places 7:84 Scotland continue their tour of a play by Ena Lamont Stewart that is all too relevant in this International Year of Shelter for the Homeless. Contrasting, naturalistic. compassionate portrayal of the people condemned to live in bad housing with caricatured pictures of the ones who make the decisions. the play develops from reality to comic fantasy as two young lads kidnap the housing officer and give him a taste of life in one of the condemned houses. Both writing and staging is patchy in places. but the play is humane. sympathetic and funny and its understated anger is entirely justified. For further details please contact 7:84 Scotland on 031 557 2442.
