Maggie & Me

Damian Barr

Brighton, 2008: Damian Barr celebrates getting a deal to write a memoir about his chaotic childhood in 1980s Lanarkshire. But as soon as he opens the door to his troubled past, everybody comes rushing through, including his younger self and the woman who forever changes his family, community and country: Maggie Thatcher.

Soon, revisiting his past turns into reliving it - the fear and the joy. From the furnaces of the Ravenscraig Steelworks to the sanctuary of Carfin Grotto, there's trauma and triumph, coming of age and coming out. Can Damian survive his past again, and his voice and finally tell his story?

Past and present collide, endangering the future, in this stage adaptation of the modern Scottish classic and Sunday Times Memoir of the Year.
