The Royal Infirmary Players

In the beginning.. or .. the roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd.

The Royal Revue had long been a popular part of the hospital year at Glasgow's Royal Infirmary. Indeed, in a tale of some dubious origin it was rumoured that these annual shows dated back to the time of Joseph Lister who caused an uproar with his inspired performance as Lady Macbeth in a Christmas production of the Shakespearean classic which featured a particularly energetic and memorable handwashing scene.

In 1981 however, some of the cast from that year's show decided it was time to take their theatrical aspirations to a new level and the Royal Infirmary Players was born.

This page is just the start of their story.
