David Hayman in Peebles

This year he shows once more that he is equally at home on stage, with his return as everyman Bob Cunninghame in Fair Pley’s latest production, Time’s Plague, a fine showcase of his versatility. Having planned to walk the West Highland Way with his pals, Bob instead finds himself stuck in a hospital bed, about to undergo a risky operation that he is convinced will see him off. So, he walks the fabled route in his mind, ranting about the injustice and state of the world as he goes. Charming and cantankerous in equal measure, he really has just one wish: for his voice to be heard. David Hayman appears in Time’s Plague at the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles – 7.30pm, Thurs 8 Sept.
