Dear Billy

UK Tour

Sound Designer

If you don’t know who Billy Connolly is, ask the people of Scotland. And if you want to know about the people of Scotland, ask them about Billy Connolly.

Gary McNair, one of Scotland’s finest theatre makers, and an expert team of story gatherers spent years speaking to people all over the country about The Big Yin. Some knew him in childhood, at the shipyards of the Clydeside, from his trailblazing and extraordinary stage and movie exploits. Some had only met him once, some still dream of meeting him but they all had one thing in common- they weren’t short of things to say about him.

A great night out for all that will have you in stitches!"
