HIYA DOLLY! by Vince Licata

The astonishing Edinburgh tale of the world's first cloned animal
The true story of how a cute, attention-seeking lamb became the most famous sheep in history - the world's first cloned mammal. Created and born at the Roslin Institute outside Edinburgh. Dolly lived the good life. A worldwide celebrity who never left her farm. Mother to six lovely lambs. She changed biology forever and irrevocably changed the lives of all her human parents. Who were they? How did they do it? Where are they now?  Come and meet Dolly and find out how to clone a sheep in this new play full of Dollified Scottish folk tunes, science, human drama and lots of woolly humour!

This new play with songs set to well-known Scottish folk tunes explores the science, human relationships, and public reaction surrounding the remarkable cloning of Dolly the sheep.  It blends science, human drama, and comedy with a talking sheep!

Jimmy was a war hero… until he came home
When Jimmy Vanderberg leaves the Ford factory in Detroit and volunteers to serve in the Vietnam War, he wants to prove himself a man.  But after the war, Jimmy returns to a country more humiliated than grateful and feels abandoned by those he served. Years later, Jimmy is intoxicated by the Trump message ‘Make America Great Again’ but a chance visit by the son of a fallen comrade forces him to doubt his convictions.

Written & performed by award-winning actor-playwright Richard Vergette
Directed by Andrew Pearson
