Fibres is a darkly comedic play that tells the story of a young woman and her family facing the effects of asbestosis fro, Glasgow's shipbuilding industry. 

It is told from a woman's perspective and reveals the recent and shocking truth that women have contracted asbestosis second hand. Told with gallows humour, Fibres tells the story of a couple's journey of discovery and loss, a daughter's attempt to overcome her grief, and find love that she saw in her parents.

A story of love, laughter and the untold legacy of Glasgow’s shipyards. 

Written by award-winning playwright Frances Poet, Fibres is a big-hearted and laugh out loud play about what it means to entwine our lives with another, in sickness and in health. A story told by four characters who show a very Glaswegian resilience and wit, the play asks can we ever cut the cords that bind us and who will catch us if we do?
