Auditions are taking place tomorrow and Sunday for Lobey Dosser Rides Again which was inspired by the work of Glasgow artist Bud Neil.

West of Scotland playwright Duncan Comrie, 54, wanted to bring Lobey Dosser back to life for his legion of fans.

Bud Neill was one of Britain's most innovative newspaper cartoonists. Between the 1940s and 1960s his witty and sometimes surreal work appeared in a range of titles.

His most famous character Lobey, who is cowboy sheriff of the mythical Calton Creek, first appeared in the Evening Times in 1949 and ran until 1956.

The audtions will be held in Partick Burgh Hall tomorrow from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and on Sunday from 2-4pm.

Lobey Dosser Rides Again will be performed at Partick Burgh Hall on June 12.
