The Benny Lynch Story by David Carswell (Scottish Tour)
The show tells the story of Scotland's first ever boxing world champion.
A poignant and entertaining look at Benny's life, from his childhood in the Gorbals' slums, to his boxing success and global stardom, and ultimately to his demise and untimely death in 1946 at the age of only 33.
It doesn't matter if you're not a boxing fan. This show is about the extraordinary life of a Scottish icon. It is the ultimate rags to riches to rags story.
