Hopscotch Theatre has been reinventing itself, following the departure of director Grant Smeaton. It is moving away from Scottish history entertainments towards more mainstream educational theatre for primary schools. The first production of the new era, I Want to be an Inventor, will end its run this month at the National Museum of Scotland and the Glasgow Science Centre. Next year, Hopscotch will tour What We Did When The Oil Ran Out.
