Ayrshire Post - - Cumnock And Doon Valley - Gary Fan­ning

Foot­ball fans can take a trip back in time as Isosce­les Theatre Com­pany presents On Our Way to Lis­bon at Cum­nock Town Hall on Thurs­day, May 31.

De­scribed as ‘ a two- man play with a cast of thou­sands’, On Our Way to Lis­bon tells the story of the 1967 Euro­pean Cup, when Celtic be­came the first Bri­tish team to win the tro­phy with a fa­mous vic­tory over the mighty In­ter Mi­lan.

Writ­ten by Pa­trick Prior and di­rected by Jim Dunk, join two fans as they recre­ate how the Bhoys in green and white beat the team who were hailed as un­beat­able.

Ac­tors Pat Aber­nethy and Dave Mars­den play all of the char­ac­ters – play­ers, crowds, com­men­ta­tors and man­agers – in a mas­ter­piece of story- telling, in­clud­ing some hi­lar­i­ous slow- mo­tion se­quences.

The show be­gins at 7.30pm and tick­ets, £ 10/£ 8, are avail­able from eas­t­ayr­, Cum­nock Town Hall on 01290 421028.
