Yes, the Pantheon play for 6-10 March 2018 at Websters Theatre Glasgow is the classic gritty Glasgow based drama ‘MEN SHOULD WEEP’.

Written by Ena Lamont Stewart in 1947 and Directed for Pantheon in 2018 by Alice Langley, the play is a powerful piece of theatre, focusing on family life in the 1930s and all that that entails, especially in relation to gendered roles and the effects of poverty, but with that dark Glaswegian humour often found during times of hardship.

Appalled by the poverty and deprivation suffered by the residents of Glasgow's slum tenements in the first half of the twentieth century, Ena Lamont Stewart (1912-2006) wrote ‘Men Should Weep’ for Glasgow Unity Theatre (a radical group of young writers) in 1947. This extraordinarily moving play of women surviving in the east end of Glasgow of the 1930s, finds in the lives of Maggie, her family and her neighbours, not only all the tragedy that appalling housing, massive unemployment and grinding poverty can produce, but also a rich vein of comedy… in the sense of the ridiculous; the need for a good laugh.
