Out of the gate and off for a walk, went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.
Anyone with young children will recognise these immortal words instantly as the opening lines of the book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd.
Following a Sell-Out run at the Fringe 2010, Hairy Maclary and his friends are springing off the page once again this summer and landing at the Lancaster Grand Theatre this September with their fabulous stage production. Featuring many of the characters from the books, with music, singing and several of your favourite Hairy Maclary stories, this show is a must for the whole family.
Hairy Maclary had his first appearance in the book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy in 1983, written by New Zealand’s Lynley Dodd; it is a series of 12 books, with Hairy Maclary as the main protagonist and the main antagonist Scarface Claw, a nasty tom cat who is the meanest cat in town.
