In September 2014, Tweed Theatre revisited The Steamie – an award-winning staple of Scottish theatre – in a production directed by Elizabeth O’ Raw.
It’s Hogmanay in the Steamie and four women get down to finishing their washing in time for the bells. The quartet, hindered and helped by the hapless mechanic Andy, gossip, sing, laugh and cry their way into the New Year. They conjure up a poignant, hilarious slice of life in 1950s Glasgow, when community was everything and beginning to fracture.
Filmed by Gordon Russell live at the Eastgate Theatre. Part two of The Steamie will screen on Thurs 1 October.
