‘Margaret Saves Scotland.’
Oran Mor (Corner of Byres Road and Gt Western Road)
Wednesday 11th April 2018
This is classed as the most popular and successful UK lunch time theatre. A new play every week, Monday to Saturday. Thirty-seven new plays have been commissioned for this year!
Oran Mor is a stunning building and has a fantastic atmosphere. The warmth, openness and continuing appetite for new drama from the Oran Mor audience has become legendary and this season’s plays should continue to enhance their reputation.
‘Margaret Saves Scotland,’ is written by Val McDermid, an international best seller who has won many awards for her work.
It is about Margaret Holt, who embarked on a holiday romance with a difference and it changed her life. Falling in love with Scotland filled her with a burning desire to liberate the country from the English yoke. But what could a nine-year-old lass from Yorkshire do to make that dream come true? Join Margaret as she embarks on the journey of a lifetime
Forty tickets have been obtained by BOSPEN and interested members should apply for tickets in the normal manner.
(This is a new venture and a new location for us.
It has come about because of a member’s suggestion.. If you have any ideas about theatre visits, talks,interesting places to visit, then please contact Janette Buchanan.)
