Whatever Gets You Through The Night.
“Whatever Gets You Through The Night is a compilation of stories happening across Scotland between the hours of midnight and 4am. From a heartfelt goodbye on the shore of Loch Lomond to an encounter in a late night Aberdeen taxi queue, we meet lost souls, party animals and dreamers, in a snapshot of an entire nation at its most vulnerable and revealing.
Some of Scotland’s most distinctive writing voices and songwriting talents, and you: a nation of people, awake in the dark, waiting for the light to come…”
Whatever Gets You Through The Night is an astounding, new media project featuring some of Scotland’s most eclectic musicians, novelists, artists and play-writes.
