Another Nice Mess 

Performances at Tramway, 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow on: 

Thursday June 29th, Friday June 30th & Saturday July 1st  7.30pm
Tickets: £10.00 (£7.00 concession)

June 1947… the widely-anticipated return of Stan Laurel – one time resident of Glasgow’s Southside – with his partner, Oliver Hardy, for a run at The Glasgow Empire. 

Also, June 1947… The Laurel & Hardy Club (Battlefield branch) are threatened with eviction from their beloved, bomb-damaged cinema. The Lords Bannatyne have plans to turn it into a ‘motor vehicle tenement parking’ facility.

Will the L&H Club members succeed in thwarting the Bannatyne’s dastardly plans? Will they finally get to meet their heroes? Will Detective Inspector Michael ‘Mick’ McMichael, Bootleg Billy, Pickpocket Pam and a host of other desperadoes save the day?

With all the eccentricity and rebelliousness of a 1940s Ealing comedy, with just a dash of melodrama, this isn’t just any old show. This is a Southside Group show.

All performance captioned and BSL interpreted.
