CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
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; 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. 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. Featuring original songs by Cora Bissett, MC Soom T, Patricia Panther and John Kielty.
