Benny from The Benny Lynch Story

The Benny Lynch Story

Cathkin Park Ltd

Thursday 27 June, 7.30pm

This national production 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.

Scottish acting legend DAVID HAYMAN plays Benny's coach and mentor Sammy Wilson.
HOLLY JACK (River City, Burnistoun, Waterloo Road) plays Benny's wife
SIMON WEIR (High Road, River City, Taggart, Acid House, Trainspotting 2) plays Tash the Gorbals' sage.

Directed by DAVID HAYMAN Jr.
