There’s not just one Maw Broon; there’s two of them. In this hilarious and heartbreaking show, Maw Broon and her doppelganger are having a mid-life crisis. They try everything in a quest to find out what reality is, to find happiness and love.
Maw Broon visits a therapist, goes on a reality TV show, meets Cameroon and Osbroon, fights against bedroom tax in the butt and ben. Maw Broon wonders where she fits in in the new 7 classes and where she stands on independence. She can’t stop moving; she can’t stop asking questions. Brooned-off, broke and full of bravado, Maw Broon bravely goes where no Broon has gone before, holding up a sneaky mirror to the whole of Scottish society.
Don’t miss these riotous monologues with a crackling script by Jackie Kay and a fantastic 
score by Tom Urie & Alan Penman, this show might also be called Maw Broon the musical. With a fantastic new design by award-winning Amanda Stoodley and directed by Liz Carruthers, the new Maw Broon Monologues will make you think, laugh and cry. And make you wonder what is real and what is not.

I'm from Oz so some of it whistled over my haid :0 The messages though, were clear and insightful. These women can sing and act and let's not forget Daphne. I did bring an interpreter but she was too busy laughing and stomping her feet AND singing along to be much help. It was a fabulous night. Thank you.

Wonderful show insightful and delicious fun. Fabulous acting, and singing from both women oops, and Daphne. I'm from Oz and even though I took along my native speaking guide, she was too busy laughing, stomping AND singing along to be any use. I'm sure I missed some of the depth through my ignorance but I would not have missed this for anything. Thank you so much.
