Gut @ Traverse with Kirsty Stuart & Lorraine McIntosh

In association with the National Theatre of Scotland, Kirsty Stuart and Lorraine McIntosh take the World Premiere of ‘Gut’ to the Traverse Theatre on April 20th – 12 May 2018 and then to The Tron Theatre from 16 – 19 May.









I know my boy. I’d know if something had happened to him.

Maddy and Rory are devoted parents to 3-year-old Joshua, committed to keeping him happy and safe. But when an everyday visit to a supermarket café turns into a far more troubling incident, their trust even in those closest to them is shattered. Fear and doubt consume them, until they reach a savage breaking point.

Gut is a taut psychological thriller that explores who we can trust with our children. And whether it’s more dangerous not to trust at all.

Written by Fringe First award-winning playwright Frances Poet (Adam), Gut was shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and is directed by award-winning Traverse Associate Director Zinnie Harris.
