A Night To Remember

A Citizens Theatre Community Production
A Night To Remember

*UPPER CIRCLE ON SALE FOR SAT 26 MAY. CALL BOX OFFICE TO BOOK 0141 429 0022*

“Every theatre has got ghosts. Well this one has got more than most.”

As the Citizens closes its door for the next two years for a major redevelopment, the Gorbals Ghosts have got the place to themselves. So it’s time for a bit of 1918 style entertainment! But another kind of memory gets awakened by the songs and stories of a hundred years ago.

The story of Glasgow in the First World War is also the personal story of the Donaldson family and what became of them in the trenches of Flanders and back home in the streets and pubs and munitions factories of the Second City of the Empire.

Drawing on texts of the time from casualty lists to advertisements, with songs, jokes and a bit of mind reading, join a company drawn from the Gorbals and across Glasgow (and a few ghostly presences) for A Night to Remember, where telling the truth about the past is a matter of life and death.  

Part of the Southside Fringe programme.

Reviews

"I couldn't imagine a more fitting way to close the Citizens ahead of its refurb. A Night To Remember is a heartbreaking story, beautifully told and performed in a uniquely Glasgow fashion."
- Broadway World

"Funny, moving, and at times unsettling ... this is an ambitious and highly satisfying show."
- The Wee Review


- The Herald
