Twenty-three years on from their slightly dodgy, single foray into the charts, Scottish pop sensations The Majestics are mourning the loss of Bigg Jazza – their charismatic frontman – whose Ford Sierra just collided with a bus shelter via an unwelcome late-night kebab. With a Silver Jubilee tour booked, an album to cut and a TV documentary in the offing, can Jazza's brother, Danny, just washed up from New York with only four dollars to his name, save the day?
It was 1987 when John Bryne's award-winning comedy-drama burst onto the nation's TV screens, searing itself into a generation's consciousness in the process. Now he has adapted his own original script, as the National Theatre of Scotland and His Majesty's Theatre, Aberdeen, bring Vinne, Eddie Clockerty, Miss Toner, Suzi Kettles, Bomba et al. to the stage for the very first time.
The stage version of Tutti Frutti premiered at His Majesty's Theatre, Aberdeen, in September 2006.
