FIFTEEN SCOTTISH actresses, including the popular Karen Dunbar, star in The Guid Sisters at The King’s Theatre next month - a ‘rich raucous and gritty’ Scots version of a French/Quebecois play.

The play runs from Tuesday, October 23 to 27 and your Milngavie and Bearsden Herald has teamed up with the theatre to offer a reader a pair of tickets to the show on Wednesday, October 24 at 7.30pm.

Michel Tremblay’s play Les Belles-soeurs has been translated by Bill Findlay and Martin Bowman and premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in 1989.

The cast also includes Romana Abercromby, Jo Cameron Brown, Maureen Carr, Hannah Donaldson, Lisa Gardner, Kathryn Howden, Molly Innes, Sally Reid, Anne Louise Ross, Gayle Runciman, Marianne Tees and Gail Watson.

Following recent successes with 27 and Dunsinane, two major Scottish producing companies - The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh and the National Theatre of Scotland - join forces to present this Scots classic.

It is directed by Serge Denoncourt who is one of Canada’s leading directors with over 80 productions to his credit including his work with Cirque du Soleil.

It tells the story of Germaine Lauzon who wins a million Green Shield stamps.

She is in for a windfall but the only way she can collect the money is to stick each stamp into a book.

Calling upon her family, friends and neighbours to help, the play listens in as this formidable group of women talk about life, the world and the men in their lives.

This play has been supported by Bank of Scotland Pioneering Partnership.

If you aren’t lucky enough to win tickets they cost £10 to £25, phone 0844 871 7648 (booking fee)
