Lagan

By Stacey Gregg

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A kaleidoscope of stories from post-Troubles Belfast, Lagan is an intimate and absorbing dramatic portrait of a city with a past like no other.

Ten lives flow through the city of Belfast, like the River Lagan. A man returns to find old values and new shopping centres. A woman talks to her son's ghost amid scaffolding. A taxi driver picks up a pint of milk for his drunk dad. And a young woman turns her back on her past and discovers the possibility of love.

Stacey Gregg's play Lagan was first staged at Oval House Theatre, London, in 2011.

Press Quotes

'Gregg's script bites... confident and self assured'

Whatsonstage.com

'Blurring dialogue and monologue, Stacey Gregg's lyrical, punchy script is a delight. Sombre one moment, laugh out loud funny the next, her writing lends Lagan its urgency and verve'

Time Out

'The snaking structure is clever as the glancing connections between the characters are stealthily revealed, and there is no doubt that Gregg can really write'
