The Rejects – Theatre @ Heart of Hawick


Live Borders Arts and Creativity and Shark Bait Theatre Company present The Rejects.

Five strangers, who mistakenly think they’re well adjusted, go for a pint after being interviewed for the same lousy job. As the night progresses, the beers and response-emails roll in and one by one the group are rejected. Each discovers that they may not be able to handle rejection quite as well as they originally thought. We see their ability to put on a brave face around their competition diminish with each round of beers. Follow these five strangers on a journey of bonding over the shared trauma of rejection. A new play about competition, being a slave to capitalism, and the inconvenient human instinct to crumble at rejection.
