Wullies Big Night At The Theatre
Comedy and Tragedy are the theatrical emotions that we often experience through theatre. Here, they are interpreted through Wullie's familiar face on this joyful, celebratory piece. 2019 marks the 80th anniversary of Dundee Rep Theatre and this design is symbolic of years gone by, the buildings the company has called home, and the creativity it has shared with its audiences. A wrap-around of colourful tickets illustrates the pathway from 1939 into the future. This design embodies a theatre which is proud to be part of the city of Dundee, entrusted to us by and for its people.
