Double helping of comedy

Mary Massacre

THEATRE fans can help themselves to seconds at Eastwood park theatre this week with Double Nugget – a duo of comedies.

Toured by Random Accomplice, both plays promise humorous, uplifting tales and are said to be perfect mirror images of one another.

The first, Mary Massacre, is a bittersweet rollercoaster as two women meet by the fair candyfloss machine. Strangers to begin with, Leyla and Jenny soon unravel a few shared interests – and some overlap in their life stories too.

The second is Seven Year Itch – an intriguing tale about the office daydreamer with that murderous look in their eye – billed as a “chilling tale, packed full of frivolity”.

Double Nugget comes to Giffnock on Tuesday, at 7.30pm. Tickets £9-£13, available from 577 4970 or www.eastwoodparktheatre.co.uk/boxoffice.
