I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it. Even more since she died. But I’m having trouble.

‘The List’ tells the story the story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list. The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.

The List will be at Paisley Arts Centre on Saturday 31August, 7.30pm. Tickets to the performance cost £10 (£6 conc) and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0300 300 1210 or going online to
