Chris Hannan

Published by Nick Hern Books

5 Male 4 Female

The Quinn family live in a Glasgow tenement so poor the only floor covering is old newspapers

But Elizabeth Gordon Quinn is indomitable in the face of poverty and rising rents

Furthermore, she is harbouring a son who is wanted by the police for desertion...

Originally premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 1985, this radically revised version was published alongside the major revival by the National Theatre of Scotland in 2006, its inaugural year

'You expect a play set in the Glasgow rent strikes of 1915 will be a model of dour social realism, but Chris Hannan confounds all expectations. The result is both startling and provocative' ~ Guardian

A 'startling and provocative' play ~ The Guardian
