Lanark: A Life in Three Acts: adapted for the stage Kindle Edition
The first thing I remember is... falling.A young man arrives in a dying city with seashells in his pockets. He doesn't know who he is, or how he got here. He goes by the only name he can think of: Lanark. Lanark is a portrait of the outsider artist as a young man, an exploded life story like no other. This theatrical re-imagining of Alasdair Gray's classic novel takes us from the Dragon Chambers to the Cathedral of Unthank, from the post-war Glasgow School of Art to the sinister underground Institute, from the heavenly city of Provan to the hellish Elite Café, combining science-fiction, realism, fantasy, and playful storytelling.'Insanely ambitious... a heady, unsettling, unpredictable dream... this is a darkly playful and intriguingly dislocated evening in which chronological time, theatre's fourth wall, character conventions and all expectations get smashed.' GuardianLanark: A Life in Three Acts was conceived in collaboration by David Greig and Graham Eatough and adapted for the stage in collaboration with the creative team. It was presented as a co-production between the Citizens Theatre and the Edinburgh International Festival at the Edinburgh International Festival 2015.

It's a great adaptation of a great novelReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on March 3, 2016
It's a great adaptation of a great novel. I saw the first preview of it in Glasgow and remember feeling that for the audience that production meant much more than for me ; it was directly about them, about their lives, about their identity. David Greig is in my view the best contemporary British playwright and although he is better known in England than his other Scottish colleagues, his work is very rarely performed London.
