CELEBRATED Scottish actor David Hayman is returning to Biggar with a new show based on the upcoming Independence Referendum.

After a hugely successful season at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Pitiless Storm, held at the Corn Exchange, dramatises a dilemma for those on the left when deciding how to vote in the referendum.

It is a one-man show, written by Chris Dolan and produced by FairPley, deals with the crisis of conscience in a popular and effective trade union official on the eve of the referendum, facing a conflict between his lifelong loyalty to the labour and trade union movement, and the situation he finds in his homeland.

David said: “The play deals with a very real dilemma faced by many on the left as September 18 approaches.

“Do we stick with the ideals we have grown up with, or face the reality of the issues facing Scotland today?”

The Corn Exchange stage will be familiar to David as he brought another one-man show, Six and a Tanner, to the Biggar Little Festival back in 2011.

Earlier that year he also had the honour of opening Biggar Little Cinema.
