Yer Granny

Douglas Maxwell


Based on La Nona by Roberto Cossa

Yer Granny is a riotous new comedy about a diabolical 100-year-old granny who’s literally eating her family out of house and home. She’s already eaten their fish and chip shop into bankruptcy and now she’s working her way through their kitchen cupboards, pushing the Russo family to desperate measures just to survive beyond 1977.

As proud head of the family, Cammy is determined that The Minerva Fish Bar will rise again and that family honour will be restored – and all in time for the Queen’s upcoming Jubilee visit. But before Cammy’s dream can come true and before Her Maj can pop in for a chat, a single sausage and a royal seal of approval, the family members must ask themselves how far they will go to solve a problem like Yer Granny.

'This is the voracious granny in Roberto Cossa’s La Nona, an Argentinian comedy relocated in Douglas Maxwell’s very funny adaptation to a Scotland of turf wars, brutalist architecture and the Queen’s silver jubilee.' Guardian ★★★★

'Maxwell’s dialogue is demotically delicious and his script provides the actors with material to develop salty, saucy, vinegar-sharp performances.' Observer ★★★★

'Like its South American progenitor, Yer Granny is no-holds-barred and often tasteless. As it asks just how low human beings can sink, we discover, as with much great comedy, that we are laughing at ourselves.' Telegraph ★★★★
