WHAT GIRLS ARE MADE OF
Grunge has gone global, indie kids are inheriting the earth, and a schoolgirl from Glenrothes is catapulted to a rock star lifestyle as the singer in a hot new indie band. Touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur, she was living the dream. Until she wasn’t.

In the world of amateur theatre, winning the one-act festival isn’t a matter of life and death – it’s much more important. Throw in a few love triangles and throw out political correctness, all the drama happens behind the curtains.
“eye-wateringly close to the bone genius.” The Sunday Post
“leaves the audience breathless with laughter from start to finish” The Scotsman
