Whatever Gets You Through The Night

A collaboration between director Cora Bissett, playwright David Greig and Swimmer One on a major, Creative Scotland-funded project which brought together new work by over 20 of Scotland’s most distinctive writers and musicians, all of whom were invited to create something inspired by the hours between midnight and 4am. This resulted in a live theatre show – staged at the Arches, Glasgow (2012) and Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh (2013) – a film directed by Daniel Warren, a 16-track album and an accompanying book design by Studio LR.
