Sex & God

By Linda McLean

Paperback £10.99£8.79

Four women from different moments in the twentieth century talk across time in Linda McLean's extraordinary play about faith, lust and family.

Jane, a kitchen maid, the first in her family to move to the big city for work; Lizzie, passionate but unskilled and permanently dodging poverty; Sally, an early school-leaver who escapes a dangerous relationship by working her way into a profession; and Fiona, first in her family to go to university and discover a world of bewildering choices.

Linda McLean's play Sex & God was first performed at Platform, Glasgow, in October 2012 in a production by Magnetic North.

Also included in this volume is a short play, What Love Is, first performed at Òran Mór, Glasgow, in 2011.

Press Quotes

'Beautiful and delicate'

The Guardian

'The range of images she creates, and the sympathetic imagination that drives her writing, is never less than moving'


'Perhaps her most ambitious [work] to date... a powerful collage of embattled lives, repeatedly obstructed and frustrated by economic and social hardships'
