Cappielow icon Andy Ritchie is set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming production of ‘Mon Eh Ton’, it has been revealed.
A comedy drama covering the history and characters of Greenock Morton, from its origins in 1874 to the present day, Mon Eh Ton promises to be a must-see for all Ton supporters.
When a fan gets hit in the head by a stray ball he wakes to find the ‘Ghost of Morton Past’, who educates him on the history and trials and tribulations of his favourite team – a must see for all Ton supporters!
And writer and director David Carswell has now announced that 61-year-old Ton Hall of Famer Ritchie will be appearing in the show at the Beacon Arts Centre, which runs from this Thursday to Saturday 16 September.
Andy said: “I’m really looking forward to being in the show and catching up with the Morton fans. It should be a cracking few days, with loads of laughs and sing alongs.”
David added: “We want the fans to come along and join in the songs, but there’s also plenty of humour in there for non-football fans.”
Andy also features in the exhibition video, which includes old match footage and new interviews with Morton legends, that runs at the Beacon from Wednesday 13 September to Saturday 16 September. The exhibition is free of charge.
