Govanhill Theatre’s production for this year’s Southside Fringe is Glenwyn Parry’s The Doll Doctor. Translated from the original Welsh language play “Sear Doliau” by David Brown and Directed by Bruce Downie, the play examines our obsession with modernisation, the role of women and the power women hold within our society and asks searching questions about our existence and beliefs.
Jones goes about his business mending dolls in his workshop until The Girl strolls in unannounced. She takes control of running the workshop and appoints a new apprentice The Boy. Both of them play mind games to unsettle Jones and uproot his settled way of doing things.
