Men Should Weep

Written in 1947, Ena Lamont Stewart's extraordinarily moving play of women surviving in the east end of Glasgow in the 1930s has been revived to critical acclaim.

'Men Should Weep" finds in the lives of Maggie, her family and her neighbours all the tragedy that appalling housing, massive unemployment and grinding poverty can produce. There is also a rich vein of comedy – the need for a good laugh through difficult times.

Set in the 1930s in the kitchen of the Morrison's tenement home, the play is regarded as a Scottish contemporary theatre classic.

Our production was directed by Rik Kay.
