Join the undisputed queen of Scottish comedy on one final trip down memory lane as she brings down the curtain on her legendary career.

Dorothy Paul appears at Motherwell Concert Hall for the very last time on Tuesday, March 24.

Dorothy said: “I love coming to Motherwell, it is always a great night and I’m delighted to be playing the concert hall for one last time.

“I have been in showbiz for nearly 60 years and writing comedy for the last 25 and sometimes you wonder where the years have gone.

“I wanted to retire while I was still giving audiences value for money, it’s better to go out on top than have them thinking ‘she’s not what she was’.

“I approached writing this show with a lot of determination as I knew I had a good one left inside me, it was a lot of work, but I am very happy with the final result.

“There will be some of the classic sketches that everyone loves, but this is far from a ‘greatest hits’ tour.”

Dorothy will be joined on stage by an old friend.

She said: “Dave Anderson will be with me as we are also doing a Q&A with the audience, we did it during last year’s show and it went very well so decided to do it again.

“I’ve known Dave for many years, he is a great friend and a wonderful actor so I’m glad to share the stage with him.”

Other special guests are singing trio La De Dah and pianist John Crawford.

As she prepares to leave a gaping hole in Scottish entertainment how will Dorothy spend her time?

She said: “I paint, I have my grandchildren and I intend to travel so there is lots I want to do.”

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets costing £16 (£14 concession) are available by calling 01698 403120 or visit Culture NL
