Premiering at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh: a kind of love story from Belgium adapted by one of Scotland's most popular young playwrights When Paola invites Raymond into her life, as drum teacher to her son, the past gets messily unravelled. Unkwn to her, he's the half-brother of her great passion, the famous Serge. And just as they share a bond of love with him, their memories of the past are a little too close for comfort. Who's got the best version of the truth? This neat and poignant two-hander is premiered at the Traverse, Edinburgh, the powerhouse of new playwriting in Scotland.
Arne Sierens is one of the most important figures in Flemish theatre. Stephen Greenhorn, who has adapted The Ballad of Crazy Paola into English, is the author of one of the most successful Scottish plays of the 1990s, Passing Places (also published by NHB), which he has also adapted for both radio and film.
