Maggie and Me

Maggie and Me Image
'Don't you worry I'll always love you. Love doesn't run out. It's not like the gas meter. I'll find extra love.

Its October 12, 1984 - the Brighton bombing. Maggie Thatcher emerges from the rubble dusty but defiant and somehow in the living room of 8-year-old Damian Barr in Newarthill.

No time for turning, so buckle up for a surreal yet so-real rollercoaster ride through Damian's painful past rediscovering who he really is. From the furnaces of the Ravenscraig Steelworks to the sanctuary of Carfin Grotto, there's pain and joy, coming of age and coming out. And Saint Dolly Parton. It's about finding your voice and telling your story.

Maggie and Me is a Scottish classic and Sunday Times Memoir of the Year. Damian Barr and James Ley One of (Scotlands most exciting early career writers' Exeunt) team up for this dramatic return to Damian's childhood Before you can move on, you have to look back...

Age Recommendation: 14 years and over, contains strong language and adult themes.
