The Lions Of Lisbon
A Play of Two Halves by Ian Auld & Willy Maley
Starring River City’s own bad guy Lenny Murdoch played by the great Frank Gallagher.
Get ready to roar for the golden anniversary of the finest silver ever lifted. In May 1967, 10,000 of the greatest
supporters in the world embarked on the most important crusade since the quest for the Holy Grail. They
hailed from Scotland, Ireland and every corner of the globe. Most were Celtic daft. Some were just plain daft.
The fans lived on borrowed time and borrowed money, arriving in Lisbon with a fistful of escudos and a
heart full of hope. A full cast of ten, plus live band, recreate the humour, passion and occasional calamity that
accompanied a Glasgow & District XI showing Europe’s finest how the beautiful game should be played.
Adapted and Directed by Martin McCardie. Musical Director Dave Anderson
