Fresh from its sell-out 2013 tour, Shang A Lang returns to venues across Scotland, showcasing its wickedly funny script, hilariously talented cast and fantastic soundtrack. Written by Catherine Johnson (writer of the smash hit Mamma Mia) and directed by Rapture’s Artistic Director Michael Emans this production is an all-round great night out experience.
Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and laugh-out-loud adult humour.
Shang-a-Lang follows three flighty, forty-something, Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where they eagerly await to see their heroes, the Rollers, perform once again. They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it.
Shang-a-Lang is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous
soundtrack – a cross between a Scottish Shirley Valentine and Shameless.
Please note: Shang a Lang is a dramatic play, not a musical. Also as part of the production’s
comedic style, the show contains very strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.
