Chic Murray – A Funny Place for a Window

Another chance to see Maureen Carr in Chic Murray: A Funny Place for a Window, coming to The Stand’s New Town Theatre, Edinburgh.

Chic Murray was the comedian’s comedian. In a career that took him from an engineer’s apprenticeship in Kincaid’s shipyard, Greenock, to the top of the bill at the London Palladium, Chic was a complete one-off. Dave Anderson as Chic, Maureen Carr and Brian James O’Sullivan recreate their original Play, Pie and Pint production on the hilarious triumphs and tragedies of Chic’s glittering but flawed career. ‘Five Stars!’ (Herald). ‘Dave Anderson is superb’ (Scotsman). Warning! Some patrons might find scenes in the play seriously funny. Written and directed by Stuart Hepburn.

Runs Aug 19-25
