Dirty Wa­ter set to wow au­di­ences af­ter a suc­cess­ful run at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Fresh from a suc­cess­ful run at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe, a play fo­cus­ing on the lives of Glas­gow clean­ers, Dirty Wa­ter, is com­ing to town.

And play­wright John Stu­art who has cre­ated the play which has been likened to Irvine Welsh’s Trainspot­ting and Tony Roper’s The Steamie, was so de­ter­mined to get Dirty Wa­ter on tour he even stripped off.

John and some of the cast per­formed a Full Monty style show and raised a stag­ger­ing £1000 for the pro­duc­tion to go on tour.

Dirty Wa­ter is a mod­ern day story of make friend­ship - Jock, Craw­ford, Brian and Boab all work for the Ea­ger Beaver Clean­ers team.

Jock, the team leader is try­ing to come to terms with be­com­ing a fa­ther for the first time; Boab is a ladies man; Craw­ford is the func­tional al­co­holic and man of wis­dom and Brian is the pri­vately ed­u­cated strug­gling ac­tor.

Writ­ten by play­wright and screen­writer John Stu­art it is a play he is ex­tremely proud of.

“Dirty Wa­ter has had over 30 per­for­mances over the past two years which in­cluded 19 shows at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe,” said John, 31.

“I am re­ally proud of ev­ery­one in­volved and this tour of the pro­duc­tion is a real test for us as we were ner­vous about a tour but it’s been great.”

Dirty Wa­ter will be at East Kil­bride’s Vil­lage Theatre on Septem­ber 9 and 10.
