South Beach Sessions are delighted to take a step into the unknown by putting on a play in the pop up venue by the sea!

The Price of A Fish Supper

By Catherine  Czerkawska

Set somewhere on the Ayrshire coast, The Price Of A Fish Supper explores the demise of the fishing industry as seen through the reminiscences of the central character, Rab.

Like a modern day ‘ancient mariner’, Rab relates his riveting story of love, rivalry and disaster.

It is a story about the human suffering at the heart of this most hazardous of traditional occupations. This one-man play is at once tragic and funny, holding out, by the end, the faintest glimmer of hope for the future.

This is the first Ayrshire production of The Price of a Fish Supper which was first staged in Glasgow in a season of the Oran Mor’s A Play, A Pie And A Pint. It received glowing reviews, moved to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was subsequently broadcast on BBC R4.

The play is directed by Isi Nimmo with Ken O'Hara as Rab and is set around the year 2000.

The play comes with a 16+ age advisory limit on it! There will be a Q&A session at the end of the play.

The Venue

South Beach Sessions found it's new home during WinterStorm Rock Festival Weekend when we set up a stage, a bar and full PA into the "Reception Room" overlooking the beach and prom in Troon Concert Hall. Not only has it the most spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde and the occasional breathtaking sunset it also feels like a real venue! It will be used as standing only, seated and mixed depending on the event taking place and we have 24 nights booked for 2018 already with a mix of rock, folk, bluegrass, Americana, blues, tributes and comedy to come before the end of the year.
The bar is professionally provided by The Harbour Bar in Troon and will offer draft beer as well as bottles, spirits and wines. It is for the moment over 18's only but we are hoping that we can develop the family friendly music theme as we move forward.
The room has a 1980's Student Union feel about it and we're happy with that vibe. Great sound, great views, great artistes. All we need to make it work in the longer terms is YOU!
