Divided City in South Lanarkshire

Citizens Learning

Following success in Glasgow, we are working with South Lanarkshire Culture and Leisure on a re-mounting of the musical stage version of Theresa Breslin’s book about racism and sectarianism. Funded by the Scottish government.

This version starring a cast of students from South Lanarkshire’s state schools, will feature a nine piece professional band and be accompanied by learning materials and workshops looking at the issues raised in the story of the play.

Set against a backdrop of the Orange marching season, Graham and Joe are drawn into a secret pact to help a young asylum seeker and his Glaswegian girlfriend when all they really want to do is play football for Glasgow City. Can friendship pull them through?

A gripping tale about two boys, one Celtic fan, one Rangers fan, who must find their own answers in a divided world.

“crackingly fine musical staging…with the energy of whole-hearted team spirit”
The Herald

PRESS - from Glasgow performances

“a truly uplifting combination of gritty reality and youthful optimism…the finest show around this week was the Citizens Theatre and Glasgow City Council’s powerful two-act musical Divided City”.
The Scotsman

“a show that radiates a fierce teenager energy, as if someone had taken the mouthy charm of an episode of The Inbetweeners, and given if it a sharp, passionate injection of moral purpose, and sheer Glaswegian love of place”.
The Scotsman

“superbly choreographed by directors Guy Hollands and Elly Goodman, to a score by Claire Mackenzie that produces some breathtaking set-pieces”
The Scotsman
