AYR FORT PLAYERS – ‘FIVE GO TO GLASGOW’

The successful GAIETY ON TOUR programme returns in Autumn 2024! Opening in The Gaiety Studio, the tour will go on to visit four rural locations, with ‘FIVE GO TO GLASGOW’ presented by long-established Ayrshire amateur group, The Ayr Fort Players. An innovative live ‘radio play’ production – with cast reading from scripts alongside a technical team member undertaking live sound effects. Appearing at a village hall or community centre near you, at STAIR, BALLANTRAE, KIRKMICHAEL, and FAIRLIE during August and September 2024.

When Aunt Fanny sends ‘The Five’ off to stay with George’s distant cousin in Glasgow, the four kids are taken on a walking tour of the city and sites. To their dismay someone they meet along the way absconds with their dog Timmy! Follow the kids’ extraordinary escapade as they leap into action with their cunning rescue plan, culminating with a slap-up afternoon tea with Aunt Fanny to recount their big adventure.

(*footnote : This play is for ‘radio’, so maybe the ‘kids’ aren’t quite as young as they would be if they had to appear on stage. In fact, the majority of the cast have waved goodbye to their youth a number of summers past! Suspend all belief and get your tickets NOW!)

The Gaiety on Tour is supported by Creative Scotland, and ARIA Ayrshire Rural Islands & Ambition Fund.
