Jan McArthur is raging. Her husband just left her for a silicone-enhanced woman 20 years her junior. She’s lost her job. Her cat just died. And to cap it all, the menopause is on the rampage, leaving her a hot flashing mess. When Jan reads Jack Bonham’s women hating column, he becomes the embodiment of everything that is wrong in her life. Jan sets out for revenge, and decides to kidnap Bonham until he writes a column in praise of the Older Woman… Before long it becomes clear that the strutting misogynist of his column is nothing more than a fiction… but now Jan’s got Glasgow’s top broadsheet columnist chained to her kitchen radiator… where does she go from here?

“If you need cheering up after watching the last two Scotland games, make sure you grab a ticket for the hilarious ‘Number One Fan’ by Kim Millar. Directed by my good friend April Chamberlain and starring the irrepressible Joyce Falconer, I saw it yesterday and it’s a hoot from start to finish. Oh and at £15 for the full package – your play, pie & pint – it’s about half the price of a ticket for Hampden!”
Monday - Saturday 1pm
(Doors 12pm/12.30pm on Mondays)
Ticket price includes a drink (beer, wine or soft drink) plus a pie or vegetarian quiche.
