Hairy Maclary in Sydney

Hairy Maclary and Friends made its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010 with a sold out run of 25 shows, with extra dates added due to popular demand.

2011 saw the show embark on a UK tour, including dates in London, Lancaster, St Andrews and a hugely successful return to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Late in 2011 Hairy Maclary & Friends was invited to the Sydney Opera House for a 5 week summer residency.  This run was extended by two weeks due to popular demand with 69 shows and 21,000 people catching the show.

2012 saw our second, even bigger UK tour which also included our début in Ireland, Wales and visited Birmingham, Manchester, Norwich, Glasgow and many places in-between!

In 2013 an updated version of the show premiered in the fringe with 2 new stories including the début of the Slinky Malinki character.  The original show continued to tour in both the UK and Australia and visited New Zealand for the first time.

2014 saw the show visit Asia for the first time with productions in both Hong Kong and Singapore.

In 2015 the follow up show Hairy Maclary’s Cat Tales will be launched at the Edinburgh fringe festival.

Hairy Maclary & Friends is produced by Nonsense Room Productions which was founded in 2002 by Simon Beattie and Bruce Strachan.  In 2010 the company expanded and welcomed Matthew Brown & Lois Creasy as creative partners and is based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
