"Mix-ups! Mayhem! A Gay Wedding!"
In a run-down midtown apartment, an agoraphobic theatre buff takes solace in his record collection. To chase his blues away, he settles down to listen to the fun, frenzied (and entirely fictitious) 1928 Broadway hit The Drowsy Chaperone. As the musical farce comes to life in his living room, our world-weary narrator guides us through the deliciously gossamer-thin plot involving a nervous bridegroom, a pair of gangsters, and a very thirsty chaperone. The Brian Cox studio at Scottish Youth Theatre plays host to this show-within-a-show, as Glasgow Music Theatre transports you back to the Roaring Twenties in this perfect pastiche of Hollywood's golden age.
