The Uncertainty Files

by Linda McLean

When I get really overwhelmed I go to a drugstore and look at the little sample sizes in the travel section and it calms me because I can try anything and not commit to it.

In this new play by Linda McLean’s only one thing is for sure; nothing.

The Uncertainty Files was developed with support from the Orchard Project Theatre Residency Programme.

Paines Plough is partnering with Glasgow’s legendary A Play, A Pie and A Pint to bring you five new plays by five of of the UK’s leading writers – April De Angelis, David Harrower, Marie Jones, Linda McLean and Gary Owen – on tour in England, Scotland and Ireland, with a pie and a pint thrown in.
