Following sell-out performances at Glasgow’s Òran Mór as part of A Play, A Pie and A Pint, Andy McGregor’s acclaimed musical tale about grief, greed, and chip grease - SPUDS - is coming to the Lemon Tree on Tuesday, September 28 at 7pm, guaranteeing a good night out for returning theatre audiences.

The show tells the story of David McGonagall, a middle-class man living in a very nice house just off the Byres Road in Glasgow's west end.

Within the first few minutes of the show his wife, and chief earner, dies - leaving David struggling to pay the bills.

A chance encounter between some chips and knock off Iron Breew leads him and his daughter Daisy to discover Spuds.

An orange chip that gives a high like no other.

Within days David is on the road to success, selling his wares throughout the city, but soon people start to get ill and the drug is banned.

That is a major turning part in the story, and one of the reasons why it has been called 'Breaking Bad with a Glesca accent.' David refuses to stop and soon has built up a huge criminal empire, but at what cost!

Tickets are on sale now and are available from www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, at the box office at His Majesty’s Theatre or the Music Hall or phone (01224) 641122.
