Glasgow Comedy Festival


Alan Bissett
The Red Hourglass

Òran Mór
Tuesday  3 November



A dazzling, unique performance from Alan Bissett, the Fringe First-winning creator of the classic Scottish play The Moira Monologues. Here he inhabits five characters – three male, two female, none of them human – locked up together in a mysterious research facility. This is a shape-shifting, virtuoso acting display that confronts humankind’s greatest fears, and will make you tremble…with laughter.
