The Steamie

The Steamie returns in just a couple of weeks

Tony Roper’s play The Steamie, which Scotland has taken to its heart, is coming to The Hydro with a bigger cast, bigger sets and more songs and music than ever before.

It will run from 27-31 December, The Steamie is a theatre classic; an ode to the hard-working women of the 1950s and to a bygone Glasgow.

The young Doreen envisions a new future, while Mrs Culfeathers looks back to the past – the play is a snapshot of a society, of a time and a cross section of strong women, all rolled up in Roper’s hilarious comedy.

The revamped show will see Louise McCarthy and Gayle Telfer Stevens marking their Steamie debut and playing the feisty Magrit and gullible Dolly respectively.

Fiona Wood returns to the show for the third time to portrait the young, full of hope Doreen whilst Mary McCusker reprises the poignant role of Mrs Culfeathers. Harry Ward joins the cast as the lovable drunk handyman Andy.

Written and directed by Tony Roper with songs by David Anderson, this Hogmanay the show takes over Glasgow’s SSE Hydro, the largest entertainment venue in Scotland.

It will be staged on Friday 27 December at 7.30pm, on Saturday 28 December at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, Sunday 29 December at 6pm, Monday 30 December at 7.30pm and Tuesday 31 December at 1pm.
