CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

The Guid Sisters archiveA big win and a night in, when the girls get together nothing's left to chance! Germaine Lauzon wins a million Green Shield stamps. Germaine is in for a windfall but the only way she can collect the money is to stick each stamp into a book. Calling upon her family, friends and neighbours to help, the play listens in as this formidable group of women talk about life, the world and the men in their lives. This "rich, raucous and gritty" Scots version by Bill Findlay and Martin Bowman of Quebecois writer Michel Tremblay's play Les Belles -Soeurs was premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in 1989. Findlay went on to trans-create eight Tremblay plays, with co-translator, Martin Bowman. This successful partnership has made Tremblay one of the most performed international playwrights in Scotland. The Guid Sisters is not only regarded as a classic contemporary Scot's play but it is also timely theatrical portrayal of women grappling with economic survival.
Performers Kathryn Howden, Karen Dunbar, Jane McCarry, Sally Reid, Jo Cameron Brown, Maureen Carr, Gaylie Runciman, Molly Innes, Romana Abercromby, Ann Louise Ross, Sally Armstrong, Hannah Donaldson, Marianne Tees, Lisa Gardner.
