“Pit the kettle oan mither, this is braw news!”
The Glebe Street ganghave featured in DC Thomson comic strips in the Sunday Post since 1936 and this production celebrates them in their 80th anniversary year.
Award-winning Scottish playwright Rob Drummond brings the iconic characters Granpaw, Paw and Maw Broon, Hen and Joe, Daphne, Maggie, Horace, the Twins and the Bairn to life for a Scottish audience in a production filled with laughs, love and comic-strip visuals, all set to a Scottish soundtrack.
This world first theatrical staging draws inspiration from the famous comic strip to bring you a brand new lively and fast paced tale. Can Maggie really, finally be getting married?! Return to Glebe Street, the But an' Ben, and of course the Kirk to find out! The marvellous artwork and well observed storylines of The Broons mean that everyone recognises a little of themselves in these classic tales and their much-loved characters, which will now be brought to life for a live theatre audience.
The Broons will be brought to the stage by Sell a Door Theatre Company, whose recent touring productions include Footloose, American Idiot and Avenue Q, which is now in its third successful year. Sell a Door also stages work specifically for Scottish audiences, including the recent Scottish tour of Sunset Song.
