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."
