Chris Hannan

Published by Nick Hern Books

It's Ann's wedding day - but she's in two minds who to marry because there are two men in her life and they are both called Billy

Meanwhile her daughter Mandy wants to save souls - and makes a start with Charlie, who is on the dole and on the make. And then there's Nanette and her friend Prophet John...

Soon there are nine characters in search of their souls, some sex and a wardrobe

A 'very funny city comedy' - Independent on Sunday

'Chris Hannan's Shining Souls is a joy ... a generous-hearted drama set among the hopeless, the helpless, the impoverished and the aimlessly drifting in present-day urban Scotland ... a marvellous gift for comedy, blissfully funny demotic dialogue ... a depth of compassion in the writing ... combines hilarity with heartache' - Daily Telegraph

'A seriously funny play, and a welcome return for Chris Hannan' - Independent This new, totally revised version of Shining Souls opened at the Glasgow Tron in February 2003

Chris Hannan was born in Glasgow and returned there to live after university in Cambridge. His previous plays include Elizabeth Gordon Quinn & The Baby & The Evil Doers, for which he won that year's Most Promising Playwright Award
