Overview

Supporters? Sport? It may as well be bare knuckle boxing or dug fighting!

A modern parable set against the backdrop of the first Old Firm clash of the season. Funny, tough and thought-provoking, Scarfed for Life tells the story of two teenage friends caught in the crossfire of polite suburban prejudice and garden equipment.

The play draws on what sectarianism and prejudice actually mean to young Glaswegians, and how it affects them and their peers. The Old Firm is the collective name for the Glasgow association football clubs Celtic and Rangers.

Scarfed for Life is a hard-hitting play based on the experiences of discrimination and prejudice among the young people of Glasgow.
