A must to see at some point in Mayfest is Roadworks, a late-evening show being put on between 5 and 16 May, starting at 10pm, with a bar cpen from 9pm—1am. The show is an all-musical extravaganza put on by members of Scotland’s unrivalled theatre company, Wildcat, who have always used music in their shows. Roadworks is essentially a collection of Wildcat's greatest hits, taking songs from previous shows including Dead Liberty, The Crack, Business In The Backyard and Heather Up Your Kilt. ‘This is the best musical band we've ever had,‘ boasts Wildcat of Neil Hay (front, with bass), Christina Zdanavich, David Anderson, Gordon DougalI, Steve Kettley, Rob Handleigh and Lesley Robertson, a pot-pourri of talent capable of turning their hands to rock, reggae, blues, jazz, funk and boogie. They’ll be appearing at the Volunteer Centre, Elmbank Street, and £3.50 (£2.50) guarantees an evening of colourful, witty and incisive ‘musical madness’.
