THE hugely successful play The Price of a Fish Supper is heading to Ayrshire next month.

Written by Catherine Czerkawska, and set somewhere on the Ayrshire coast, it explores the demise of the fishing industry as told through the reminisces of the central character Rab.

Played by Ken O'Hara, Rab relates his riveting story of love, rivalry and disaster.

It is story about the human suffering at the heart of this most hazardous of traditional occupations.

The one-man play is both funny and tragic, holding out, by the end, the faintest glimmer of hope for the future.

The work was first staged in Glasgow at the Oran Mor's A Play, A Pie and A Pint season, where it won glowing reviews. It was later broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

Tle latest production, directed by Isi Nimmo, will come to the Cutty Sark in Ayr on August 25 and 26 and the Bothy Cafe, River Garden, Auchincruive on August 27. 

Ken said: "I toured the show with my own company MAD Productions five years ago to sell-out audiences. 

"This time, I am performing at The Cutty-Sark Centre in Ayr (newly opened) and The Bothy Cafe, a residential training and social enterprise development centre offering a three year residential programme for people in the early stages of recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

"I performed my one-man show A Christmas Carol here last year to a sell-out crowd and am very excited to be supporting them once again and, indeed, to be supporting the new Ayr events hub."
