Carrying David – World Premiere Play by Ed Waugh (Hadaway Harry, The Great Joe Wilson)

May 31, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - June 2, 2019 @ 10:30 pm


From the writer of Hadaway Harry, The Great Joe Wilson, Mr Corvan’s Music Hall and Sunday for Sammy sketches…Wisecrack Productions present…

Carrying David

World premiere of the story about Glenn McCrory , the very first North East World boxing champion.

Friday, May 31, 7.30pm

Saturday, June 1, 2.30pm & 7.30pm

Two brothers: one fighting for fame, the other fighting for his life.

Inspired by the love of his terminally ill brother David, on June 3, 1989, Glenn McCrory made boxing history, becoming the Cruiserweight Champion of the World.

Funny and heartbreaking, Carrying David is a remarkable one-man play reflecting the highs and many lows of Glenn’s unrelenting drive and incredible sacrifice to become the very first world boxing champion from the North East.  Don’t miss this!

Starring Micky Cochrane (The Great Joe Wilson)

Directed by Russell Floyd (Hadaway Harry)
