Following her acclaimed performance as Susan Boyle, Elaine C Smith returns ‘home’ this summer as she tours her one woman show.

After her run in UK stage hit ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ Elaine from Newarthill is at Motherwell Concert Hall on Friday, August 2, with Elaine C Smith, Still Standing . . . Just.

Take a break from the financial doom and gloom and enjoy one of Scotland’s leading actresses and comedy performers in her own one-woman show.

Laugh at Elaine’s outrageous and wickedly funny stand up, and get the opportunity to question the woman herself; a born entertainer, great all rounds comedienne, actress, writer, singer and general raconteur.

She has all the swagger and experience gained from a career spanning over 30 years in theatre and television.

From television starring roles in BBC’s City Lights, Naked Video, Rab C Nesbitt, and her own television series Elaine, to the recent award-winning and hugely successful national tour of the stage musical “I Dreamed a Dream”.

Don’t miss this unique chance to experience Elaine in an intimate theatre setting.

The show will be even more memorable as it’s the first time she will have performed in her home town since she did pantomime nearly 30 years ago.

Elaine will also be performing to the concert hall audience on her birthday, so let’s make sure we wish her well with a chorus of Happy Birthday to welcome her back to Motherwell.

Still Standing . . . Just starts at 7.30pm and tickets costing £20 are available by calling the box office on 01698 403120 or visit NLC Entertainment

The Times & Speaker has two pairs of tickets to give away.
