The 2019 sell-out show returns to Edinburgh for a limited run this summer.

The “Comedian’s Comedian” Chic Murray passed away in Edinburgh on the night of the 29th of January, 1985. In a career that had taken him from an engineer’s apprenticeship in Kincaid’s Shipyard, Greenock, to the top of the bill at The London Palladium, Chic was a complete one-off.

On what is his last day on this earth, Chic takes a musical look back at the ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies of his glittering, but tragically flawed career.

Enjoy not just this fantastic production, but also a hot pie and pint or soft drink, which are included in the ticket price!

Please note that these performances take place at MultiStory (NCP Car Park, Castle Terrace, EH1 2EW), and not at the Traverse Theatre

Originally produced with Glasgow Lunchtime Theatre at Òran Mór.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
