Sex & God
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.
