18th - 20th May 2017
Jake owns a recording studio. He’s been recording the same album with the same band for the past fifteen years. Everyone else gets the breaks. But Jake still has a ticket in the music industry lottery and unbeknown to him a potential windfall could be heading his way. He might just have to make a few... compromises.
Inspired by the research of musicologist and human rights campaigner Dr. Morag J. Grant into the use of music as means of torture in political conflict, Music Is Torture is a jet-black comedy set in Limbo Recording Studios, featuring live music and new songs from A Band Called Quinn.

About Biding Time (Remix)
'In the wake of David Bowie’s passing, pundits have had their eyes open for other examples of musicians who’ve aimed to break down the boundaries between art, pop and theatre. Look no further than Glasgow where Louise and her merry men have been, as they put it, “mixing up film, theatre & music like space socks at a psychedelic laundrette.' Tom Robinson (6Music)
