An interview with Colin Richmond, set designer for the National Theatre of Scotland's production of Men Should Weep.
Written by Ena Lamont Stewart and directed by Graham McLaren.
Set amid the grinding poverty of Glasgow's tenements in the 1930s, Men Should Weep has long been a favourite with audiences.
Following the misfortunes of the Morrison family, Ena Lamont Stewart's landmark play is a searing depiction of the hand to mouth poverty that working class people lived in at that time.
At the centre of the story is Maggie, the care-worn matriarch. Supported and hindered in equal measure by a network of neighbours and family - from whom it is impossible to keep any secrets - she does her very best in the worst of circumstances, always putting herself last.
Supported by Bank of Scotland, Pioneering Partner of the National Theatre of Scotland
