I, Claudia

By Kristen Thomson

Paperback £15.99

A touching and funny play about a girl on the cusp of adolescence.

2001 Dora Mavor Award for Outstanding New Play

Claudia is an official pre-teen, still reeling from her parents' divorce. Her father is getting re-married, she has a science fair project due, and she is in the physical and emotional throes of puberty. Finding refuge in the basement of her school, Claudia discovers the pain at the centre of her brimming heart. It is up to some important adults in her life – her grandmother, her father's new girlfriend, the school custodian – to shed some light on her situation.
