New theatre from veteran actor, playwright and musician David Anderson, (City Lights and Gregory’s Girl), Katie Barnett and Jack Mullen.

An Old Guy visits a “Seaside Museum” on his bus pass, where he finds a Punch & Judy stall. When no-one is looking, he peeks in, and finds himself in the year 1960. He’s 15 years old, and holidaying on the coast of the West of Scotland.

It’s a world of rock’n’roll, “teenagers”, burgeoning consumerism, rampant hormones, lazy daytimes gazing into rock pools, love of all things American, and A Girl.

Not The Girl he’s left behind and whom he’s afraid of losing to an Older Man (17 years-old). No. An altogether more exotic creature. The one who introduces him to the Butterfly Kiss.

Dwight Eisenhower is President of the United States. Elvis releases “It’s Now or Never”
A message in a bottle is washed up on the beach. People have jobs, making things. There’s only one TV channel, to which only some people have access.

For a second year Dave Anderson tours the latest episode in his cycle of mini-musicals for created originally for A Play, a Pie and a Pint.

Must see for anyone who is, or ever has been 15

In the first half of the show Dave treats the audience to blethers and a journey through his musical influences garnered with his own compositions including items from Wildcat and the Steamie.

“The show as a whole is extraordinarily moving and powerful…” ****The Scotsman
