Susan Calman - Lady Like

Visiting Company

Award-winning comedian Susan Calman returns to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival on her first ever UK tour.

If you’ve seen her before,
‘Lady Like’ will be a reassuring couple of hours spent with the woman her neighbours call “the mad cat lady”.  If you don’t know who she is, ‘Lady Like’ will, at the very least, make you feel better about your own life.  A show about being older, wiser and liking yourself whatever anyone might say.

Comedy from Calman, as seen and heard on The News Quiz, Calman is Convicted (Best Radio Comedy 2013 – Writers Guild Award), QI, HIGNFY, Fresh Meat and Would I Lie To You.

If you think 1984 needs updating to make it relevant then you might enjoy this production. Personally I found it painfully gimmicky and poorly conceived. 1970s sitcom-style performances and terrible 'jokes' which fell completely flat. The use of incredibly annoying sound effects and tricksy set-design couldn't hide the flaws in this adaptation. I'm amazed at the positive reviews here but different strokes I suppose. Have seen some amazing shows at the Cits, but for me this was actually insulting. I hate to be so negative but this production made me angry for all the wrong reasons. On the night I got the feeling I wasn't alone judging by the general fidget-level by the end.

Took my 14 year old grand-daughter to see 1984 (one of her favourite books) as her introduction to real theatre. Her comment after, "I don't think I ever want to see another play. It would be a disappointment after this. It was excellent". Needless to say, there will be many more trips to the Citz in the future.

First time I've been to the Citizens and 1984 is my favourite book. Performance was brilliant. Theatre was lovely. Well done to the cast. I usually go to the cinema but now I'm sold on theatre.

Thank you for your comment Evelyn. Very glad you enjoyed the backstage tour. We are very proud of all the history in this theatre, and one of the key areas we want to improve in our building redevelopment project is how accessible and open the normally hidden areas of the theatre are.

Hi, was on your backstage tour yesterday (31/8/14) which was absolutely fantastic! The tour guide was so knowledgeable and explained everything is such a way that the past came to life. Fascinating insight also into how modern day theatre works. Highly recommend it.

Fantastic! I have seen the trilogy several times - still as good as the first time! Can't wait! Hope David does the trilogy for a whole new generation.

Hello Heather, This production of Hamlet is the original Shakespearian language, however it has been shortened in places.

Hi there, I was wondering if this play is an adaptation of the original using contemporary language or is it fully performed in Shakesperian language? many thanks, Heather.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photographs that I have just come across today. Many many thanks for the workshop on Friday evening. It was wonderful and a true education for mankind world wide.

I simply loved this glorious mash up of the Shakespeare. It had the play at its heart but didn't worry about it too much! The performances were full of energy and the action included me. I too am a regular theatre goer and I haven't seen something this fun and bold in years. Linda Hoskins needs to re-connect with her funny bone. If she has one.

I am involved in a very small part of this play but I am astounded at the new up and coming talent this will open up to the world of acting, set,costume and sound. Truely a voyage of discovery for all theatre lovers both old and new. A must see and those that do will enjoy seeing new talent for the very first time and rewarded talent of the future. If anyone in the industry knows their stuff they will be rewarded by a show they will enjoy and seeing acting ability at it's best not to mention our wonderful Joyce and the band.Written by geniuses and will bring fond memories to our audience. What more can I say.

What an excellent portraial of Ivor Cutler & his life. Full of humour, witt & surrealism. Full marks to the cast for a superb performance of the finest quality. This show should play in the west end. Would recommend it to everyone. Thank for a very entertaining evening!!!!!
