National Theatre of Scotland / Communicado
Calum's Road has become the stuff of modern folklore. It is the remarkable true story of one man's single-minded determination to challenge the powers-that-be and is returning to stages across Scotland by popular demand.
Calum MacLeod, having battled the inaction of authorities on Raasay for years, sets off alone with a pick, a shovel and a wheelbarrow to build a road that will connect up the island.
His daughter has been forced to board at secondary school on Skye and now Calum’s not having it any more. He wants to turn the tide of neglect and indifference and keep his family - and community - together.
His unpaid labour of love was to dominate the last 20 years of Calum’s life and leave behind a legacy – both practical and poetic - carved into the landscape he loved.
Adapted by David Harrower, from the book by Roger Hutchinson

The Joe Longthorne Evening
This talented artist began his career over three decades ago with appearances on Junior Showtime, followed by a grounding on the tough Northern club circuit.
His big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television's Search for a Star - this lead to appearances at the London Palladium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town. A short time later, Joe received the Variety Club of Britain award as Most Promising Artiste of the Year. Television specials in the UK and USA followed.
Joe's repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world's top singers; however, he is perhaps best known for his impersonation of Shirley Bassey who has commented, "Joe can do me better than I can do myself".
During his career, Joe has received gold and platinum discs for his albums, enjoyed sell-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as touring Australia several times.
Now, Joe is looking forward to new challenges, new songs to sing and new audiences to thrill.
