Morton to take centre stage at the Beacon

A play covering our 143-year history is set to take centre stage at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock from Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 September.

The comedy drama, written by Gourock playwright David Carswell and titled ‘Mon Eh Ton!’, covers the highs, lows and characters at Cappielow from 1874 through to the present day.

David said: “When a really moany fan gets scudded in the face by a stray ball before a match at Cappielow, he wakes to meet the Ghost of Morton Past – Shug to his mates.

“Shug – played by Chris Gavin – walks the fan through the decades, covering the glory years and the not so glorious years. The show is packed with laughs and the occasional Morton song thrown in for a bit of audience participation.

“There will also be a Morton exhibition running alongside the show and this will be held in the function rooms at the Beacon Arts Centre.

“The centre piece of the exhibition will be a video featuring old match footage, old footage of Greenock and new interviews with Morton legends.”



Tickets are priced £15 and £13 for concessions and can be purchased at the Beacon Arts Centre, by visiting their website by clicking here, or by calling 01475 723723.
