The Benny Lynch Story
The show tells the story of Scotland’s first ever boxing world champion. It is a poignant and entertaining look at his life, from his childhood in the Gorbals, to his boxing success and global stardom, and then sadly to demise and untimely death in 1946 at the age of only 33.
Doesn’t matter if you don’t like boxing. It’s a show about a man. It’s the ultimate rags to riches to rags story.
