Scottish Editor, Donald C Stewart caught up with Alan and Carly to talk about their new play by a care experienced ensemble that will bring punk back centre stage in February in Glasgow!!
“We’re a punk band. A politically motivated Marxist punk band that want tae bring doun the rich by any means necessary!”
It’s 1978. Unemployment and violence darken every Glasgow close, Scotland have been knocked out of the World Cup, Grease is at the top of the charts and seminal Scottish punk band The Jaggy Nettles are imploding.
Whatever Happened to the Jaggy Nettles? is performed by the Citizens Theatre’s WAC Ensemble, Scotland’s first care experienced theatre company. The company aged 18 – 26 have been working with the Citizens Theatre to create this riotous and rowdy new play written by Martin Travers and directed by Guy Hollands, with brand new punk-inspired songs performed live on stage.
