Theatre Review: Girls Night Oot, Websters Theatre, Glasgow

After a successful Glasgow run and Scottish tour of 'I Will Survive', Insideout Productions are back with comedy sequel, 'Girls Night Oot' directed by Paul Harper-Swan. This time around Lauren's getting married and her three pals celebrate the only way they know how - with a guid old hen night. 

The cast is made up of four strong female vocalists, who are all relatable and humorous in their own right. Lauren Ellis-Steele, Alison Rona Cleland, Natalie Tulloch and Donna Hazelton all play ballsy, confident women and command the attention of the room from the first scene. While the story is thin and there are no plot twists to speak of, Insideout has the crowd-pleasing song choices picked to perfection. Bootylicious, I'm a Woman, Proud Mary and Ain't No Mountain High Enough were but a few of the offerings.

Crowd interaction and panto-esque banter is encouraged throughout which successfully manages to make the audience feel like the fifth cast member. Girls Night Oot is exactly what it says on the tin - good fun and a chance to let you hair down.
