Theatre audiences in Glasgow are infamous for giving performers a hard time. Glaswegians are hard to please and when not pleased, they will let you know all about it.
Glaswegians, then, are stunned that even their extremely high standards have fallen short of what the British Red Cross expects. The Pavilion Theatre, Glasgow, production of the pantomime, Robin Hood, has been accused of breaching the Geneva Convention by using the famous Red Cross on a nurses uniform.
Glasgow can resemble a war zone on a Saturday night but even the hard pressed police in Glasgow have never invoked the Geneva Convention.
The theatre took this so seriously that the manager found some green material and made green crosses to obscure the offending Red Crosses.
This has pleased the Celtic supporters in Glasgow. Susan Boyle, the famous Scottish singer and fervent fan of Glasgow Celtic may even join the cast, on stage, for some community singing of famous Celtic anthems.That's Glasgow Celtic Football Club, Glasgow not the Boston Celtics, by the way.
Supporters of Glasgow Rangers Football Club are none too happy looking at Green Crosses and demand equal treatment. The theatre is thinking about green crosses and blue crosses on alternate days.
Jim Davidson, star of the show, thinks it's a pile of manure. (he's rude and his exact words cannot possibly be repeated).
