Paras over the Barras

Our 2014 Fringe show at St Serf's Hall was a must-see reprise of our sell-out production of "Paras over the Barras (2005)".

James Barclay's play delivers hilarious and heartwarming tales of Glasgow during the Second World War. It captures the grit and humour used by the East End tenement dwellers to overcome adversity in the dark days of the 1940s.

Directed by Don Arnott.
