The Broons

DC Thomson's THE BROONS A new stage play by Rob Drummond

Broons Copy “Pit the kettle oan mither, this is braw news!” Scotland’s most famous family The Broons are coming to the Theatre Royal! The Glebe Street bunch have featured in the classic DC Thomson comic strips in The Sunday Post since 1936 and this production celebrates them on their 80th anniversary! Award-winning Scottish playwright Rob Drummond brings the infamous characters Granpaw, Paw and Maw Broon, Hen and Joe, Daphne, Maggie, Horace, the Twins and the Bairn to life 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 means that everyone recognises a little of themselves in these classic tales. We are thrilled to be honouring these much-loved characters and bringing them to life for a live theatre audience.
