Yer Granny, the hilarious new comedy starring Maureen Beattie (Casualty), Paul Riley (Still Game) and Jonathan Watson (Only An Excuse?) is coming to Glasgow’s King’s Theatre this spring!
Yer Granny is a riotous new comedy about a diabolical 100-year-old granny who’s literally eating her family out of house and home. She’s already eaten their fish and chip shop into bankruptcy and now she’s working her way through their kitchen cupboards, pushing the Russo family to desperate measures just to survive beyond 1977.
As proud head of the family, Cammy is determined that The Minerva Fish Bar will rise again and that family honour will be restored – and all in time for the Queen’s upcoming Jubilee visit. But before Cammy’s dream can come true and before Her Maj can pop in for a chat, a single sausage and a royal seal of approval, the family members must ask themselves how far they will go to solve a problem like Yer Granny.
Adapted from the smash-hit Argentinian comedy classic La Nona, the cast of Yer Granny features some of Scotland’s best-loved performers, including Maureen Beattie (Casualty), Paul Riley (Still Game) and Jonathan Watson (Only An Excuse?).
