About McGonagall’s Chronicles

McGonagall’s Chronicles is the latest show from multi-award winning writer and performer Gary McNair (After the Cuts, Letters to Morrissey, A Gamblers Guide to Dying) who narrates this tragic comedy.

A biography of the late Dundonian poet, Sir William Topaz McGonagall, the play charts the poet’s life story, trying to understand how he could be so bad at what he did. It addresses the dilemma that surrounds his legend – is it okay for us to laugh at someone’s obvious and relentless failings?

The tale is brought to life by music from Frightened Rabbit’s Simon Liddell, and is directed by multi-award winning director Joe Douglas.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for McGonagall’s Chronicles are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
