The Occasion Theatre’s The Southside Group: Another Nice Mess
The Southside Group is back with melodrama, farce and silent comedy in a brand-new show taking inspiration from the visit of Laurel and Hardy to Glasgow in June 1947.
Working with Glaswegian playwright, Stewart Ennis, Another Nice Mess explores how the 1947 visit of comedy duo Laurel and Hardy impacted the members of a local Southside fan club. Or, how it might have, had such a club existed!
The Southside Group (TSG) is an exciting initiative by Glasgow based theatre company The Occasion designed to provide adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to get involved in theatre.
The Occasion and The Southside Group are grateful for support from Creative Scotland, The Hugh Fraser Foundation, The People’s Postcode Lottery and The Boshier-Hinton Foundation in order to produce this work.
ACCESS: Each performance will have a BSL interpreter and be captioned throughout.
Audience notes: Haze is used in this production
