Glasgow Girls - The Musical archiveBased 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; The Glasgow Girls is a new life-affirming musical for a multi-cultural Scotland still in transition. Seven teenagers with a cause. A protest that captured the imagination of a country. 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.

They take on the Scottish Government and the Home Office and succeed where adults and politicians failed. Featuring original songs by Cora Bissett, MC Soom T, Patricia Panther and John Kielty.
