While others worry about the trivial things in life, like food, a roof over their heads, rent strikes and world wars, Elizabeth Gordon Quinn has but one concern – her piano. She can’t play a note but it sets her apart from her impoverished neighbours. Or so she thinks…
Written in 1985, Elizabeth Gordon Quinn is a contemporary classic, widely considered to be one of the best women’s roles ever to emerge from Scottish theatre. Holding court amidst her dysfunctional family and its filth, Elizabeth Gordon Quinn is an unforgettable tragicomic heroine with an extraordinary power to repel and attract.
