A Lanarkshire Ghost Story. A proud Catholic, a diehard Socialist, a good soldier and a good father, Alex MacSwiney is not for going gently into that good night when an unfortunate accident involving a Morris Minor brings a sudden end to his life on earth. Instead he returns from the grave, seeking an hilarious and haunting revenge on those who wronged him. Me? Dead? Where's ma dinner? A striking and powerful play, shot through with searing black comedy, Losing Alec
is an extraordinary study of a family coming to terms with bereavement. A riveting personal ghost story, it is also a critical observation on what happens when the ghosts of tradition return for revenge.
