!! Next Friday night at Birchvale Theatre

Critically acclaimed writer and performer Kevin P. Gilday (Suffering from Scottishness, Sonnet Youth) takes a verbal sledgehammer to lazy stereotypes and attempts to deconstruct what it really means to be ‘working-class’ in modern Britain.

Spam Valley is a hilarious, autobiographical monologue exploring what happens when a working-class upbringing gives way to a middle-class career path. Blending theatre, stand-up and contemporary spoken word; Gilday delves into his own Glaswegian upbringing to chart his journey, from ‘Spam Valley’ to the stage, with trademark wit and delivery. Spam Valley is politically charged theatre at its best.

After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe which garnered critical acclaim, including a five star review, the show hit the road for a mini-tour taking in performances at the iconic Stand comedy clubs.
‘Poignant class satire that demands to be heard’
