Moorcroft, The Tron
Runs until 5 March, 2022
A team. A team of wit? A team of players. A bunch of mates coming the gither to huv a kick aboot. Wits new?
Garry’s turned 50 but doesn’t feel like celebrating. Exhausted from years spent wrapped in regret, he begins to relive ‘the glory days’ trying to understand his mistakes, answer questions and right some wrongs in a bid to make peace with his past and find renewed purpose.
Inspired by true stories, Moorcroft follows a group of young lads in search of an escape from their working class lives. But can playing football save them from the challenges they face and make them the men they want to be?
With true friendship and the tenacity of working class people at its heart, Moorcroft tackles toxic masculinity in Scotland and asks ‘what is a real man?’ It’s a story that is ready for kick off.
Cast: Sean Connor, Martin Docherty, Kyle Gardiner, Ryan Hunter, Martin Quinn, Jatinder Singh Randhawa and Santino Smith.
