[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Fresh from its sell-out 2013 tour, Rapture Theatre in association with Paisley Town Hall presents the hilarious drama, Shang-A-Lang. With a wickedly funny script, talented cast and fantastic soundtrack this production is a wonderfully funny and poignant trip back to the Seventies. Written by Catherine Johnson (writer of the smash hit Mamma Mia) and directed by Rapture’s Artistic Director Michael Emans, Shang-A-Lang promises to be a great night out!
Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and laugh-out-loud adult humour. Shang-A-Lang follows three flighty, forty-something, Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where they eagerly await to see their heroes, the Rollers, perform once again.
They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it. Lauren tries to stay sober, Jackie tries to stay married and Pauline continues to search for her Woody.
Shang-A-Lang is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous soundtrack – a cross between a Scottish Shirley Valentine and Shameless.
Please note: Shang-A-Lang is a dramatic play, not a musical. Also as part of the production’s comedic style, the show contains very strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.
