This community play focuses on the area of Stockbridge, the district of Edinburgh where Theatre Workshop’s Hamilton Place theatre is situated. It looks at the experience of local people, and connects historical events and individuals with the population and geography of the past. As the programme suggests, the play examines “the social and cultural mix which has always been a feature of Stockbridge”. It begins in the 1940’s looking at the consequences of the War. It then takes the audience through the cultural changes of the 1960s and onwards to the changes of the late twentieth century.
Mary Gladstone refers to STOCKAREE! As “funny, nostalgic, heart-warming and brimming with community zest and charm” (The Scotsman, 8 May 1997)
