Old Boy

Glas(s) Performance

Do you remember when we used to go camping? And when you helped me make an ATM out of cardboard for my school project? Do you realise what a big impact you’ve had on who I am? From the producers of Junction 25 comes a brand-new show about the unique bond between real-life grandfathers and grandsons that explores male family relationships and the legacy that is passed down through generations. ‘Utterly life-affirming stuff’ ★★★★ (Herald). ‘Ok, I loved it’ (FringeReview.co.uk). Co-produced by award-winning theatre company Glas(s) Performance and Platform, Glasgow. Part of Made in Scotland 2018. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com.
