Alloa’s Alman Theatre is set for a cash boost next
month...with a little help from their friends at Tryst.
The Alman is trying to raise £150,000 for a new roof
and has already banked over £90,000. Now Tryst is set
to add to this sum by staging its current comedy Cuttin’
a Rug in the theatre, with all proceeds going to
the roof appeal.
Tryst’s President Frank Murray explained: “Already
this year we’ve performed on two occasions at The Alman
to help their appeal and have raised some £1500 as a
result. So it’s third time lucky with Cuttin'
A Rug and hope we can add substantially to this sum.”
Cuttin' a Rug is by John Byrne, the creator
of the iconic TV series “Tutti Frutti”. The second
part of the acclaimed "Slab Boys" trilogy, it’s
set in 1957 at the height of the rock ‘n' roll years
– a time of Elvis, Teddy Boys and blue suede shoes.
Cuttin' a Rug, “a stags and hens comedy”,
takes place in Paisley Town Hall at the Annual Staff Dance
of AF Stobo & Co.
Act One takes place in the ladies' and gents' cloakrooms
before the dance while Act Two is all about the hilarious
events that unfold during the night.
The talented cast is Brian Paterson, Billy Treeby, Ross Melville,
Stuart Reid, Brian Tripney, Richard Macintosh, Joanne Davidson,
Rhona Law, Clare Scougall and Carol Clark. It’s directed
by Jim Allan.
Frank Murray added: “Cuttin’ a Rug
is a wonderful comedy, full of crazy cartoon characters, black
humour, machine-gun one-liners and instantly-recognisable
music. It's a perfect antidote to dark winter nights.”
It’s on at The Alman on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 December
at 7.30pm, and if there is sufficient demand it may also run
on Tuesday 7 December.
Cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
