Chic Murray, a funny place for a window, review

Once upon a time, TV folk would have thought this kind of thing deadly dull and stagey. Why would anyone want to watch a play at home and miss out on the atmosphere of the theatre? Yet the hugely successful broadcasting of live theatre to cinemas shows the public likes drama on the big screen, so why not the small?

In Glasgow, this tasty showcase for new theatre work - where lunch is included in the ticket price - has staged more than 500 plays in 15 years. Six recent productions have been filmed in situ for broadcast, starting with a music-filled tribute to comic Chic Murray, the surreal Scottish patter merchant who died in 1985.
