Whatever Happened to the Jaggy Nettles? is performed by the Citizens Theatre’s WAC Ensemble, Scotland’s first care experienced theatre company. The company aged 18 – 26 have been working with the Citizens Theatre to create this riotous and rowdy new play written by Martin Travers and directed by Guy Hollands, with brand new punk-inspired songs performed live on stage.
