Written by former Glasgow Professor of Medicine James Bridie it tells the story of a fugitive poet active in the struggle for Irish independence now posing as a porter, interwoven with a narrative of campus politics involving the election of a new Rector. This combination of a power struggle at the top of the University and a storyline that reflects on recent Irish history makes for an intriguing work. Starring Duncan MacRae, Roddy McMillan, a young Ronnie Corbett and Charles Hawtrey, and students of the College of Dramatic Art that Bridie helped found in 1950.

Clips from You’re Only Young Twice will be shared during the event, but recommend that you watch the film in full in advance.

Presented as part of Glasgow Doors Open Days Digital Festival 2020.
