    Book by David Greig

    A new Scottish musical from the director of the Olivier award-winning Roadkill.

    Scotland 2005. A family is ripped from their home in a high-rise flat in Drumchapel and driven away in the middle of the night to be deported. . .

    Driven by a fierce sense of injustice, a group of seven young women in a high school in Glasgow fight for the life of their friend and for the rights of children of asylum-seekers in Scotland. They take on the Scottish Government and the Home Office and succeed where adults and politicians failed.

    Based on the true story of one of the most vocal and powerful asylum campaigns to catch the imagination of the media and inspire a community to unite behind its residents, Glasgow Girls is a new life-affirming musical for a multi-cultural Scotland still in transition.

    The Glasgow Girls are a group of seven young women who have highlighted the poor treatment of failed asylum seekers. The group of girls from Drumchapel High School protested against the detention of one of their friends, Agnesa Murselaj, who had fled from war-torn Kosovo. Publicity grew as the girls challenged the First Minister and publicly voiced their concerns as more children at their school were dawn raided, detained and deported. Two BBC television documentaries have been made of their story.

    Recommended for age 14+

    Presented by the National Theatre of Scotland, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Citizens Theatre, Pachamama Productions, Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with Merrigong Theatre Company, Australia

    Glasgow Girls will run from 31st October to 17th November 2012 at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow, supported by ScottishPower, and will be presented at Theatre Royal Stratford East, London in Spring 2013.

    By Joe Corrie
    Adapted, designed and directed by Graham McLaren

    “There’s nae power on earth can crush the men
    who can sing on a day like this.”

    On the 30th anniversary of the 1984 miners’ strike, the National Theatre of Scotland revives Joe Corrie's 1926 classic play about a Fife mining community buckling under the strain of a seven month lockout.

    Driven by live, gutsy, folk-punk songs and intense, full-blooded choreography, this uncompromising production is a stark reminder that class conflict between those at the bottom of the social heap and those in power is perennial.

    “McLaren's production unleashes a memorably angry, vivid and theatrical retelling of a vital story in Scottish history. It's an exhilarating experience and not to be missed.”
    The Scotsman ****

    “Gut-wrenchingly emotional”
    “Vitally contemporary”
    The Herald *****

    “Intensely powerful”
    “Brilliantly performed”
    The Times ****

    “Breathtaking”
    Sunday Mail ****

    Age guidance: 12+
    Running time: approx 90 mins with no interval
