O is for Hoolet: Four Stars
Unlike Bondagers, her regularly revived play about 19th century women farm labourers, Sue Glover’s The Straw Chair has rarely seen the light of a theatre auditorium since its first production at the Traverse back in 1988. Liz Carruthers’ strong, understated production for Borderline Theatre Company, now touring Scotland, makes you wonder where it’s been all these years.
