Whilst artistic director, Robert Robson, departs to take up his position as Maytest director, the series at Cumbernauld Theatre plays which he inaugurated (and which probably swung the Maytest mandarins in his lavour) continues unabated. Being the second hall at the year, the ‘names’ are taking over trom the newcomers. This month, Ann Marie di Mambro’s latest offering, Videoscope, continues the Cumbernauld theme at ordinary people's ordinary lives in the central belt.
‘I still think very much in terms of character and story rather than issues,’ says di Mambro, whose last play, ‘Tally’s Blood’, raised considerable debate specilically tor that reason. ‘The play was originally going to be a sages of sketches, but tor me to get all on writing I really need a story.’
Videoscope centres around the conflict between video shop owner,
Jonathan, and YTS rep, Michaela. Although concentrating on telling their story, di Mambro has not ignored the potential which locating events in a video shop gives her.
‘I think that the social issues are there to be picked up on. One at the characters is a very straight Catholic. She dismisses science fiction movies because they attempt to answer questions about the universe which she thinks are already answered by her faith. But there are other characters who get all their inspiration and ideas trom the movies. Forthe most part, people know that they’re watching a movie. But for some, films are reality and it’s where they get all their role models. That’s a bit scary.’ (Philip Parr)
Videoscope is at The Cumbernauld Theatre 30 Aug—8 Sept before touring throughout Scotland in the autumn.
