The story of four boys growing disgracefully and often dysfunctionally into manhood in the Edinburgh schemes. They all go of on their journey's, whether it takes them to the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, or across the great divide from Saughton Mains to Broomhouse. But they end up together, trying to make sense of their lives and who they are.
Glue was a very entertaining production. I saw the opening performance at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow, and I thought Harry Gibson did a great job of adapting something that spans thirty years into a ninety minute piece of theatre. The Elvis karaoke was inspired and made for a great night out. The acting was brilliant, particularly John Kazek, who is one of the best stage actors in the country. I was fortunate enough to see him as John Strang in Marabou Stork Nightmares, and he was brilliant as Juice Terry, complete with corkscrew-heided wig.
