A GLASGAY! COMMISSION
Written by JACKIE KAY
Directed by LIZ CARRUTHERS
Starring TERRY NEASON & SUZANNE BONNAR
There’s not just one Maw Broon; there’s two of them. In this hilarious and heartbreaking show, Maw Broon and her doppelganger are having a mid-life crisis. They try everything in a quest to find out what reality is, to find happiness and love.
Maw Broon visits a therapist, goes on a reality TV show, meets Cameroon and Osbroon, fights against bedroom tax in the butt and ben. Maw Broon wonders where she fits in in the new seven classes and where she stands on independence. She can’t stop moving; she can’t stop asking questions. She even looks to the moon. Brooned-off, broke and full of bravado, Maw Broon bravely goes where no Broon has gone before, holding up a sneaky mirror to the whole of Scottish society.
Don’t miss these riotous monologues with a crackling script by Jackie Kay and a fantastic score by Tom Urie and Alan Penman.With a fantastic new design by award-winning Amanda Stoodley and directed by Liz Carruthers, The New Maw Broon Monologues (2013) will make you think, laugh and cry.
