The Gorbals Vampire Project, The Citizens Theatre, 28 – 29 October, 2016


28 and 29 October, 2016

A new play by Johnny McKnight performed by amateur actors and inspired by real-life events which took place in the Southern Necropolis in 1954.


In 1954, playgrounds across the Gorbals were abuzz with rumours of a man with iron teeth who had abducted and eaten two local young boys. One night in late September, hundreds of children aged 4 – 14 gathered at the Southern Necropolis. Armed with whatever they could find, they mounted a courageous campaign to track down and kill the Gorbals Vampire.

Inspired by real-life events, Johnny McKnight’s tongue-in-cheek script is inspired by the dramatic events of that night, brought to life by a large company of up to 50 performers drawn from our local community and further afield directed by Guy Hollands and Neil Packham.
