It was May 1997 and there was a sense of optimism throughout the country, Labour was back in power and even more importantly, the UK had won the Eurovision Song Contest!
D:Ream were back in the charts telling us that ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ which is what all Celtic fans were hoping as Rangers had made it 9 in a row and were hot favourites to make it 10 in a row the following season.
Celtic were in disarray on and off the field and their fans were dreading ‘the 10’, none more so than Hoops fanatic Maggie and her equally Celtic-daft dad, Tam who was totally obsessed by the fear of ‘the 10’.
It was set up to be a tense, fraught, rollercoaster twelve months with many twists and turns and that would just be in Maggie and Tam’s personal lives!
Would Rangers do ‘the 10’, would Maggie find her soul mate and would Tam survive the season without having a nervous breakdown?
On the 20th anniversary of that nerve shredding season, follow the antics of Maggie and Tam in the new comedy play ‘Bend it Like Brattbakk’.
Starring: Laurie Ventry, Carmen Pieraccini and James McAnerney
