Episode Summary

Still Game - Live At The Cottiers Theatre
The play version of the smash-hit comedy series, which enjoyed a successful tour all over the world. Pensioner pals Winston and Jack visit their friend Victor McDade in his flat. The lift breaks and they are stuck together. Like Didi and Gogo, they wait for their godot, discussing Windsor Davies, how many countries they've had ('SOUTH AFRICA! Get it right up yis!') and how bets to spend their time before it runs out. Sounds wild, doesn't it. Yet wild is exactly what it is - wildly funny. For the committed Still Game fan, the play is a bleuprint for the later TV comedy's development from series 1-3. All the seeds are there. If Chekhov had been born in Craiglang, he'd have been chuffed to bits with this play. So will you.moreless
