Here's Johnny!

Johnny "the bastard" Glendenning is setting his sights on the Citizens stage, having left Edinburgh audiences rolling in the aisles. With laughter, not through any stray bullets, mind.

DC Jackson's murderous comedy bursts the myth of society’s fascination with the glamour and machismo of gangland violence and the media’s role in actively encouraging the pervasive gangster myth, with a body count that could rival Tarantino. 

Audiences and the press have been having a great night out with Johnny and the gang down the pig farm:

“a fast and furious piece of comic myth-making to die for.”
The Herald 

“an ironic romp that infects gangster comedy with Glaswegian themes”
The List 

"a searing Scottish gangster drama for our times"
The Scotsman 

"outstanding…bleakly hilarious"
Sunday Herald
