Friday, 17 May, 2019


Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, No Nonsense Productions are bringing their nautical tale, 'Para Handy : A Radio Play' to Kirkintilloch Town Hall.

This summer, three actors and an accordionist will bring new life to Neil Munro's classic Para Handy comedy tales in a 1950s Radio Broadcast style, on stage at the recently refurbished venue.

Sandy Marshall, Chair of EDLC Trust, said, " Audiences are invited to join the well-loved characters of Master Mariner, Dougie, MacPhail and Sunny Jim and others as they take to the airwaves, in a nostalgic homage to the Clyde Puffer and her captain. This walk down memory lane is sure to raise a smile."

Councillor Billy Hendry, Convener of the Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets Committee, added, "As Scotland's Canal Capital, Kirkintilloch is a fitting venue for this maritime themed production. We're delighted to welcome this experienced and well-established company to the stage of our new-look hall.”

The production - adapted, directed by and starring Kevin Jannetts – will be at Kirkintilloch Town Hall on Saturday 27 July at 7pm and suitable for age 16+.  Bar refreshments will be available during the interval.
