Returning to Glasgow Frankie knocks on a door to find no one home. With time on his hands he wanders the streets of his past and is swept up in the ensuing roller coaster of memories and emotions. Twenty-one years after this gem of a show first played to full-houses and immense public acclaim, plan B have reunited the original creative team to bring A Wee Home From Home to a new generation. in the Year of Homecoming. Performed by Michael Marra and Frank McConnell, the duo create a double act full of warmth and charm with undertones of menace. Using an eclectic mix of raw live music, inspired, high-octane choreography and powerful theatricality, the show opens Scotland to its own wounds while celebrating a vibrant and indominitable spirit with pathos and a huge dose of humour.
“Under the imaginative direction of Gerry Mulgrew, fingers and feet combine to produce a satirical but affectionate portrait of Glasgow which is vivid and telling and quite brilliantly performed”
“A marvelous display of athletic humour and a powerful evocation of city life”
"Robust and fiercely energetic"
