Set in present day Partick and 1976 Maryhill.
Joanna is a loving and gentle woman. When her husband goes missing she panics between wanting him home and thinking of her freedom if he stays missing. She slowly realizes that life has passed her by and starts to relive scenes from her youth to when she was a young 18yr old. Going “up the dancin’” with her pal Ann-Marie Capaldi and listening to the Bay City Rollers. We relive her wonderful relationship with her Auntie Sandra and drunken Saturday night parties when she is always asked to “Gie us Ten Guitars”
Starring Sheila Grier (Brookside, Still Game, Taggart) and directed by Victor Kennedy (The Steamie) Up A Close is a funny, poignant and powerful production that so many people across the central belt of Scotland will be able to relate to.
"We laughed, we cried we got all melancholy for days gone by great acting, great writing about things, people, memories, traditions and songs well done to all involved.!
"Fantastic show laughing and crying. So many memories brought back. Great writing acting and audience participation in songs. Highly recommended.”
Suitable for 16 Years +
