Three generations of a small Scottish town struggle to deal with the death of seventeen year old Roslyn. Read More >

The Girl With Red Hair The effects of seventeen year old Roslyn’s death are still being felt by three generations of a small Scottish village one year later. Strangers, family and friends are united as they use bickering, saying nothing, flirting and playacting to deal with their emotions in this humorous portrayal of relationships and the rediscovery of love.

When playwright Sharman Macdonald’s first play When I Was A Girl I Used To Scream And Shout premiered at the Bush, Macdonald won the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award.
