Following a successful sold out 2023 tour, Up A Close has already sold out several of the upcoming 2024 dates and are delighted to be bringing the show to East Kilbride on the 14th of September. There will be two performances taking place at 2:30pm and 7:30pm If you fancy it, don’t delay as it will sell out again!

Up A Close is the story of Joanna and her life growing up in a tenement in Glasgow. When her husband goes missing she starts to relive scenes from her youth and we see the fun times she had. Dancing to the Bay City Rollers, Goin’ up the dancin’ with her pal and her wonderful relationship with her Auntie Sandra. Shang-a-lang to the music with young Joanna. The play is very nostalgic, poignant and funny. Lots of laughter and tears.
