Maggie is really, finally, getting married. Again.

In this brand new Broons adventure, as the family work together to give her the wedding of her dreams, they all start thinking about their own plans for the future. Joe thinks he should move to London. Horace wants to explore outer space and Daphne and Hen try their hand at internet dating. But with Maw determined to do anything to keep her brood together in Glebe Street, will Maggie even make it to the Kirk this time?

This world first theatrical staging draws inspiration from the famous comic strip to bring you this brand new lively and fast paced tale.

Award-winning Scottish playwright Rob Drummond brings the iconic characters Granpaw, Paw and Maw Broon, Hen and Joe, Daphne, Maggie, Horace, the Twins and the Bairn to life for a Scottish audience in a world first production filled with laughs, love and comic-strip visuals, all set to a Scottish soundtrack.

The Glebe Street gang have featured in DC Thomson comic strips in the Sunday Post since 1936 and this production celebrates them in their 80th anniversary year.
