Sauchiehall Street is a fast moving comedy about the business of show business, a play turned in on itself in a fizzy satire of actors and agents.

Sauchiehall Street is the busiest street in Glasgow, but the Dorothy Darvel Actors’ Agency is at the wrong end of it. Dorothy Davel herself is an agent extraordinaire, though her actors might not be too pleased if they found out just how carefully she is managing their careers, busy trying to stem the flow of the best ones to powerful London agencies. Two hopeful young actors, Candice and Barry, flounce self-importantly around her office while she squabbles with her once-famous actor husband Gerard and tries to teach her new linguistically-confused assistant Maureen the tricks of the trade.

Sauchiehall Street premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in 2004.
