Better Late Than Dead on Time - road safety play (free to all community groups)

Clackmannanshire - Monday 26th February 2018 to Saturday 31st March 2018

Upcoming Tour of Road Safety Play
The production is fully funded by Road Safety Scotland and is free to all community groups in Scotland.

Dates are still available to book between Monday the 26th February and Friday the 31st March.

This Spring 2018, Road Safety Scotland is funding Baldy Bane Theatre Company to tour a road safety resource for the community.

The stage play Better Late Than Dead on Time is designed for performance to all generations within communities and covers many issues such as the various hazards to drivers and pedestrians; young drivers, including problems of teenage drinking; parents parking too close to school gates; reaction times of older drivers; inappropriate speed.

All topics are dealt with sensitively and are primarily presented in a humorous but realistic way to focus awareness and discussion in the audiences. If considered appropriate, there is the opportunity for an interactive post-show session, which takes the form of an enjoyable question and answer follow-up to the play.


Robert is just about to celebrate his 70th birthday but there is someone missing from his life and her absence makes the day ahead stretch out before him.

Miriam, Robert’s daughter, is a busy working mum who worries about her daughter Sinead getting to school on her own. This morning she will have to take her there by car as they have overslept again!

Sinead is due to give a presentation to the whole school and cannot be late and Mum needs to get to work on time too. Her son Aidan has left already and is walking to school but is very distracted by the thought of meeting up with Sheryl later and is constantly checking his phone.

Will they all make it on time and how will Robert get through today? Find out what happens to this ordinary family on this extraordinary day!


Road Safety Scotland is part of Transport Scotland, the Scottish Government’s Transport Agency, and is the body responsible for the development of road safety education and publicity initiatives in Scotland.
