Dorothy PAUL will take her Dunfermline fans on a final trip down memory lane with favourite moments from over the years – but she brings a new twist to her show.

The BAFTA award-winning actress and comedian best known for her role as Magrit in The Steamie, her shows at Glasgow’s Pavilion Theatre and Sandra Cully in Garnock Way will perform her show, Classic Dorothy, at Dunfermline’s Carnegie Hall on Friday 20th March.

She told Press:On, “I’ve performed in Dunfermline lots of times and I love it.

“I love the Carnegie Hall – it is beautiful and the Dunfermline audience are wonderful.

“It is one of my favourite places to perform so I am looking forward to it. This is my last tour – I’m hanging up my hairnet! It’s time for me now. I think it’s good to retire when you want to. I want to do other things now so it suits me.

“I really like painting and I have a studio where I do that and I have grandchildren who are great.

“I’ve had a good career and I’d like to thank everyone who has come to see me – I thank them every day because they are absolutely wonderful to me and have kept my career going.” When asked about what Dunfermline can expect from the final show, Dorothy replied, “They can expect a classic Dorothy show about modern life and anything that is ridiculous.

“This show also has a part where the audience can ask questions which will be good fun.

“I think lots of people take themselves too seriously but I don’t – I just like things that are ridiculously funny.

“I find a lot of my material from being on buses – I use the buses a lot and I can’t believe some things that go on.

“Like when people are on the phone, thinking they are just talking to the person on the other end of the phone but they are really putting on a performance to the whole bus who are hearing their very personal information!

“There was also a wee woman who came up to me recently on the bus and said, ‘You’re still sticking it oot ay?’ – it was so funny.” As Dorothy leaves behind stage and TV it was only right for her to be asked what she counts as the best moment of her career. She gasped, “Well I would thinking winning a BAFTA for my show – that has to be the best moment for me!” Tickets for Classic Dorothy, which starts at 7.30pm, cost £20 (concession £19) and can be bought from, by calling 01383 602302 or by visiting the Carnegie Hall box office.
