Dundee Rep in Marcus' own words:
Dundee Rep was the first job I did, fresh out of drama school to spend the season in a little cottage in Fife. I remember being there over the winter trying to stay in bed for as long as possible to avoid scraping the ice off the inside of the cottage windows. So that was freezing during the day and the theatre in the evenings with those 3 plays.
