KP present “The Steamie” by Tony Roper (music Dave Anderson)

at Kilmardinny House Arts Centre


Thursday 21 and Friday 22 March at 7.30 pm and Saturday 23 March at 2 pm.


Kilmardinny Players will be starting 2019 with rehearsals for our March production of Tony Roper’s “The Steamie”.  Tony Roper was born in the Anderson district of Glasgow in 1941.  He sets the play in Glasgow’s East End on Hogmanay 1953 in the steamie where the local women are doing their last washing of the year.  Dave Anderson wrote the songs.


It’s a comedy drama stage play written by Tony Roper which follows the lives of a group of 1950s Glasgow

women washing their clothes in a public washhouse (steamie). It was first performed at the Crawford Theatre in 1987.

It’s Hogmanay in a Glasgow wash house, and the girls need to get their washing done before the bells.

Join Dolly, Magrit, Doreen and Mrs Culfeathers as they laugh and cry their way through the last day of the year –

with a little help from the not so handy Andy.
