Glasgow Girls

Citizens Theatre

Cora Bissett and David Greig’s life-affirming, song-filled Scottish drama returns!

Based on the true story of seven feisty teenagers, their lives change forever when their school friend and her asylum-seeking family are forcibly taken from their home to be deported. The young women are galvanised to take a stand and fight for the life of their friend and, ultimately, for the rights of all children of asylum-seekers.

The real Glasgow Girls’ story became one of the most powerful asylum campaigns in recent history - challenging the government, capturing the imagination of the media and inspiring a whole community to unite behind its residents.

Smash hit 2012. Made In Scotland showcase 2016.

Recommended for age 12+
