Scenes for Survival | Naeb’dy

News Story

After the end of the world, who expected wee Davey fae Tynecastle to be the last man standing? He certainly didn’t. But now he’s got the run of the place, and naebody to kick about with. The space is nice, but he’s starting to miss the wee pleasures of normal life. And the loneliness might be getting to him.

Greg McHugh writes, directs, and features in this darkly-comic and timely post-apocalyptic short.

Produced by National Theatre of Scotland, in association with BBC Scotland, Screen Scotland, BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine project, with support from Hopscotch Films.

"The opportunity to contribute to ’Scenes For Survival’ has allowed me to explore, in both personal and creative terms, some of the extraordinary events of the past few months. This project has proved a great reminder to me that fiction has no limits but when it’s paired with just enough reality…. can prove to be even more terrifying… but also hopefully funny."

The Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund is a fundraising campaign launched by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the McGlashan Charitable Trust and leading Scottish Theatre organisations, to raise money for those in the sector who have been hardest hit financially and are experiencing drastic economic and emotional hardship.

All donations to this fund will go directly to provide support for those most impacted within Scotland, be they actors, writers, creatives, musicians, technicians or any others within our industry.

A sector-wide call out with information and details of how to apply for support from the SFS Hardship Fund will be launched in August 2020. The Federation of Scottish Theatre and the McGlashan Charitable Trust will ensure equitable distribution of the money raised.
