Chic Murray: A Funny Place for a Window

Mon, 25 March, 2019 — Sat, 30 March, 2019

By Stuart Hepburn | Directed By Stuart Hepburn

Cast: Dave Anderson, Maureen Carr & Brian James O’Sullivan

The “Comedian’s Comedian” Chic Murray passed away in Edinburgh on the night of the 29th of January, 1985. In a career that had taken him from an engineer’s apprenticeship in Kincaid’s Shipyard, Greenock, to the top of the bill at The London Palladium, Chic was a complete one-off.

On what is his last day on this earth, Chic takes a musical look back at the ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies of his glittering, but tragically flawed career.

Warning! Some patrons might find scenes in the play seriously funny.

Presented in association with The Beacon Arts Centre and Traverse Theatre.
