The entire pantosphere is decking the halls and rocking around their Christmas trees.

And Aganeza HATES Christmas!

The Steamie is a Scottish theatre classic; an ode to the hard-working women of the 1950's and to a bygone Glasgow. The young Doreen envisions a new future, while Mrs Culfeathers looks back to the past - the play is a snapshot of a society, of a time and a cross section of strong women, all rolled up in Roper's hilarious comedy.
