The Colours of Kenny Roach

Rich in satirical wit, this is a crisply written, cool and classy play; performed with a natural, engaging ease it oozes with a Pinteresque sense of sexual tension and dramatic intrigue.” - ***** Edinburgh Guide

We're delighted to welcome John Stenhouse back to The Maltings! In the past John has performed with Berwick and Duns Operatic Societies, Eyemouth and Spittal Variety Groups and The Maltings Community Theatre. More recently John returned to the borders to play Handsome Prince in Sleeping Beauty, The Maltings 2016 professional pantomime.

John, who now lives down south, but regularly travels back, stars in this
warm, funny and deeply moving drama about creativity, the nature of the artist and the self-destructive impulse of addiction. 

Kenny is a Glaswegian artist and lecturer; talented, charismatic, charming. But even his wife cannot save him from the demons that turn his colourful world to black. Projection, music and true-life accounts combine in an honest, humorous and heart-breaking portrait of one man’s struggle with his art and his battle with addiction as he fights for his life.

This is compelling, thoughtful, character-driven drama that packs an emotional punch.” - **** Three Weeks

The chemistry between the two actors is brilliant; we always believe the underlying pain that both characters express and this leads to a truly heartfelt ending.” - **** Broadway Baby
