Our Bad Magnet is an unashamedly dark and deliciously funny play from one of Scotland's brightest young writing talents, in which the boundaries between fantasy and reality merge with unpredictable results.
Centering on an uneasy reunion, Our Bad Magnet follows the progress of four boys from 9 to 29 as they try to unlock the secrets of childhood and memory. Throw in 1980s indie music, a ventriloquist's dummy, some magical fairy stories and the word 'nimston', and you have an hilarious black comedy which isn't afraid to make you think while you're laughing out loud.
"...a big, bursting talent with plenty to say and energy to burn." The Scotsman
"It is one of the best new plays I have ever seen. Brilliantly written, thoughtfully directed and beautifully acted." Ricky Ross (Singer-songwriter, Deacon Blue)
"Our Bad Magnet is terrific...audiences are in for something exceptional." Sunday Herald
