10ft Tall Theatre Aberdeen The Deep
Aberdeen based 10ft Tall Theatre brings the miraculous true tale of a troubled man’s struggle at sea to theatres across the North East of Scotland. The Deep is set in 1999 where a young fisherman finds his ship sinking.
Graeme Maley’s adaptation of The Deep is steeped in the heritage of the North East fishing communities whilst bringing a beautiful and universal story of love in adversity. Using live music, this one-man monologue offers a compelling and unforgettable confrontation of what becomes important and relevant when lost at sea. The Deep was originally written by Jon Atli Jonasson, based on a miraculous true ocean event off the coast of Iceland.
Joyce McMillan, theatre critic of The Scotsman, described The Deep as moving "…brilliantly from the absurdity of life to the pain of losing it, from the trivial to the most profound."
The cast and crew of The Deep includes:
Andy Clark (The Da Vinci Code – Dir. Ron Howard, Bob Servant (BBC), River City – Series Regular, NTS)
Kevin Lennon (National Theatre of Scotland’s Peer Gynt, Dundee Rep’s ‘Sunshine on Leith, Best Actor at Critic’s Awards for Theatre In Scotland 2010)
Cameron Mowat (Co Artistic Director of 10ft Tall, National Theatre of Scotland, The Globe Theatre)

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
