'A toast. - A toast to Catherine Miller - Known to some as The Pirate Queen. - Liked and respected by all. - You're some woman, Catherine. - Whatever this damned thing is it'll be no match for you. - There's no fear of that. - Good health to you.' As she drifts in and out of consciousness, all the significant people in her life, grandson, daughter, and the ghosts of her youth, drift in and out of sight. What price has she paid for success? 'You didn't need school. - You had rock and roll. - You said it yourself - You only passed two exams - Cars and Boys - The only qualifications you ever needed.' A blackly comic and profoundly moving portrait of a towering woman battling with her mortality.Performers John Buick, Ann Louise Ross, Irene Macdougall, Emily Winter, Caroline Deyga, Ncuti Gatwa, Philip Howard, Ian Grieve, Catherine Miller, Sean Scanlan.
