This life-affirming and inspirational new musical tells the true story of seven teenage girls who led one of the most powerful human rights campaigns to capture the imagination of the media and unite a community behind its residents.

Driven by a fierce sense of injustice, the girls campaign for the rights of children of asylum seekers and succeed where adults and politicians failed.

Glasgow Girls will feature original songs including electronic grime from Patricia Panther, reggae-dub from Sumati Bhardwaj (Soom T) folk rock from Cora Bissett and additional songs from John Kielty.
