The Gorbals Vampire

Citizens Learning

The Gorbals Vampire is a major new community production.

The Gorbals Vampire is a new play which will be performed at the Citizens Theatre on 28 and 29 October 2016 by a large company of up to 50 performers drawn from our local community and further afield.

As well as our cast of community performers, we’re working with local schools, community groups and individuals to involve as many people as possible in this project. Read on to find out more about this project, and how people got involved.

Comic book workshops

We’re currently working with individuals aged 16 - 25 with a passion for drawing in a series of comic art workshops which will culminate in an original new comic inspired by The Gorbals Vampire. See how the team got on in workshops:
