LOCAL theatre company Craft sold out when they brought their production of And They Played Shang-A-Lang to The Stand.

The show tells one boy’s story of growing up in the Capital in the 70s.

Told through laughter, tears and music, follow Jim’s life as he negotiates the stormy waters of adolescence.

From school playground to school disco, witness his life through his eyes as it unfolds around him - his first encounters with death and his stumbling dealings with the opposite sex.

Written and directed by Derek Douglas, the new production finds the company taking a fresh approach to the show. Douglas explains, “This time we have a different cast, giving a more intimate feel to the show, while still retaining all the fun and energy that made it such a joy last time.

“Plus, the bonus is that you can come back and see it again as there’s plenty of new stuff to enjoy. We’ve already had the likes of Sean Hughes come and enjoy the show, and you should too. Trust me, you’ll love it.”

And They Played Shang-A-Lang, The Stand 3, York Place, 12.50pm, until 25 August, £10, 0131-226 0000
