We follow the Chic from his humble beginnings in Greenock, through his chance meeting with his muse, wife and stage partner, Maidie Dickson and then on to international stardom. Chic was a man who could have been a Hollywood movie star, but preferred to plough his own remarkable, hilarious and at times absurd furrow.

“Chic Murray- A Funny Place For A Window” went on to be voted one of the ten best PPP plays ever, and enjoyed packed houses and five star reviews all along the way.

We open at The Newtown Theatre, Venue 7 on the 19th-25th Of August. Book tickets here.
