Response 3: Reality & Quarry

Response 3: Reality & Quarry

Three short plays, one new comedy, four new writers, four new actors, and just ONE ticket for a whirlwind of brand new theatre.


Blink. Theatre's critically acclaimed production Response is back! After sold-out runs at Alyth Synagogue, the Courtyard and The Old Red Lion theatres in 2017, this regular new writing night returns to put the focus on nurturing emerging & under-represented writers and actors.
In this series of selected solo plays, Blink. looks at the theme of Reality. What does reality mean, how do we define it, and what does it look like in the continually changing modern world?
Response3: Reality is followed by brand new one woman comedy QUARRY by Rachel Smart.
Gemma is really quite scared. Of a lot. How not to become a Tinder using sociopath, how to stop rewarding yourself with over-priced poached eggs on toast, how to un-stick your stuck life. Gemma is going to find her voice, but she's not entirely sure what it will sound like. Or if she will like it very much.
Developed from a short play staged as part of Response 2: Power in 2017, Quarry is an insightful, brutally honest tale of one woman's struggle for confidence and clarity in the modern world. Join Gemma as she discovers a few home truths and goes on a spectacularly funny journey into her inner soul.

Critic reviews

An excellent selection of short solo pieces, wide-ranging in their topics yet delicately linked by subtle themes.

Everything Theatre
