The Benny Lynch Story

A national production touring in May and June 2019, the show tells the story of Scotland’s first ever boxing world champion. It is a poignant and entertaining look at his life, from his childhood in the Gorbals’ slums, to his boxing success and global stardom, and ultimately to his demise and untimely death in 1946 at the age of only 33.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not a boxing fan. This show is about the extraordinary life of a Scottish icon. It is the ultimate rags to riches to rags story.

STEPHEN PURDON (Shellsuit Bob from River City) plays Benny. HOLLY JACK (River City, Burnistoun, Waterloo Road) plays Benny’s wife, while SIMON WEIR (High Road, River City, Taggart, Acid House, Trainspotting 2) plays Tash the Gorbals’ sage. Scottish acting legend DAVID HAYMAN plays Benny’s coach and mentor Sammy Wilson. The play is directed by DAVID HAYMAN Jr.

Age recommendation of 14+ as the show contains strong language.
