Men Should Weep

Visiting Company

ARCHIVE

**SOLD OUT - RETURNS ONLY**

A moving, funny and unflinching portrayal of hand to mouth poverty in 1930s Glasgow. A major new production from the National Theatre of Scotland.

Despite cramped tenement living and the turmoil of seven children, there is laughter and strength in the Morrison family. Through the misfortunes, trials and tribulations, mother Maggie just about holds her brood together. But with sniping neighbours, an unemployed husband and children taking flight, it is getting harder to maintain appearances.

Remarkably ahead of its time when written in 1947, Ena Lamont Stewart’s landmark play is now hailed as a contemporary Scottish classic.

“Men Should Weep is one of the very best plays ever to be written about the corrosive effects of poverty. This is not a problem that has ever gone away. It is the story of people living with the pressure of poverty and unemployment today in Glasgow, Manchester, London or any city on the planet. I’m excited to bring the play back to audiences here at home.”
Graham McLaren (Director)
