About McGonagall’s Chronicles
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Gary McNair and Traverse Theatre
I’m in love with a man from Dundee
Though he lived 100 years or so before me
He was a poet
He was aware of this
His name was Sir William Topaz McGonagall
And his life, for you, I will now chronicle
This of the Scottish poet who some say was the world’s worst
Is fittingly written in almost rhyming verse
When it played here in April the audience did cheer and did roar
They were desperate for us to perform some more
At the end of each show on their feet they did stand
So it’s back by very popular demand
