Do you love being a Grandad?


Do you think your Grandad is a bit brilliant?


We’re looking for three pairs of real-life Grandads and Grandsons to be in Old Boy, a show about the special bond between Grandads and Grandsons.


You won’t be playing a character, just being yourself. You’ll work with the professional creative team at Glas(s) Performance to develop a script based on your memories, observations and hopes for the future. Each pair will be on stage for ca 15 minutes so there won’t be too much to learn and the show will be constructed to make it easy to perform.


We are looking for:


One Grandad and their ca 1-2 year old Grandson (toddler)

One Grandad and their ca 8 to 13 year old Grandson (boy)

One Grandad and their ca 18 to 26 year old Grandson (young man)


You’ll need to be available for all performances:


5th-6th June Paisley Arts Centre


Short rehearsals will take place weekly from around 27th April, followed by a final production week  4th June


Old Boy was originally made in Glasgow with a local cast and you can see photos and videos from that production at


If you’d be interested in taking part or just finding out more please contact Gordon Larkin or 0141 618 5103
