Singin' I'm No A Billy He's A Tim

Saturday 3 May 2014 7.30pm

Singin' I'm No A Billy He's A Tim
Goldfish Theatre Co

Scottish Theatre's greatest Success Story of recent times.

On the day of a crunch Old Firm clash, a fan of each team winds up sharing a jail cell from which their only hope of escape is cash raised by bets on the match to pay their fines. While taking turns to watch the action on a TV visible through their cell door, the pair bicker their way through every entrenched cliche of "Scotland's shame" from religion to politics and national identity.

Des Dillon's brilliant satire of 90-minute bigotry in Scotland and its inextricable connection with the nation's two biggest football teams first scored critical acclaim at the Fringe in 2005, and has since been a near-constant fixture in theatres in Scotland.

Prepare for a night of laughs from a new season with new gags.
