Scotland's most famous fictional family are coming to Macrobert Arts Centre!
‘Pit the kettle oan mither, this is braw news!’
The Glebe Street bunch has featured in the classic DC Thomson comic strips in the Sunday Post since 1936 and this brand new production celebrates their 80th anniversary!
Award winning Scottish playwright Rob Drummond brings the infamous characters Granpaw, Paw and Maw Broon, Hen and Joe, Daphne, Maggie, Horace, The Twins and The Bairn to life in a production filled with laughs, love and comic-strip visuals, all set to a Scottish soundtrack.
The marvellous artwork and well observed storylines of The Broons means that everyone recognises a little of themselves in these classic tales, and we are thrilled to be honouring these much-loved characters and bringing them to life on stage.
