Cobweb Theatre Company

Venue: The Dissection Room
Ticket Price: £8.00 / £6.00
Age Group: 18+

The raw, hard hitting and yet marvellous adaptation of Cobweb’s The Hardman tells the story of the life of Glaswegian Jimmy Boyle who was still a prisoner in Barlinnie Special Unit at the time of the original production. The play is a disturbing but stunning account of the life of Johnny Byrne, a brutalised man in a brutalised system that sees violence as an art form after growing up on the rough and impoverished streets of Glasgow.

The semi-autobiography will run at Summerhall for three nights starting at 7.30pm each night from the 11th of April until the13th
