Other information about our proposed production:

It’s a comedy drama stage play written by Tony Roper which follows the lives of a group of 1950s Glasgow

women washing their clothes in a public washhouse (steamie). It was first performed at the Crawford Theatre in 1987.

It’s Hogmanay in a Glasgow wash house, and the girls need to get their washing done before the bells.

Join Dolly, Magrit, Doreen and Mrs Culfeathers as they laugh and cry their way through the last day of the year –

with a little help from the not so handy Andy.

 

Characters

Doreen (young and fashion conscious about 19)

Magrit (impatient and cynical, has a teenage daughter, late 30s)

Dolly (talkative and gullible, late 50s)

Mrs Culfeathers (frail and lonely, late 60s)

Andy (drunk)

 

Use of Glaswegian dialect is essential.

 

We will try to incorporate some of the songs depending on singing ability of the cast.

Background washer women and men in boiler suits can be washing away, sneaking a wee drink,

getting ready to celebrate New Year and joining in with songs – cameo roles.
