New musical by Rachel Jury and Andrew Cruickshank to be premiered at the Pearce Institute, Govan from 9th November 2011. Glasgow 2011: a shopping Mecca, re-invented boutique hotels and clubbing heaven, rapidly replacing its industrial ''hardman'' identity for one of designer clothes and trendy bars. Yet out of town and out of sight little has changed for the majority of Glasgow''s citizens who live in poverty with little hope of change or escape from the townships in which they live. Miss Smith is a drama, music and vocal composition that explores issues of social and economic justice in Glasgow today. Miss Smith uses traditional dances and culture that has either working class or folk backgrounds as a seed to create a gritty, raw, contemporary theatrical event that is spiced with a lightness that captures the rich Glaswegian wit and the complexities of modern-day life in Scotland.
Performances will be held on the 9th and 10th November at 2.00pm and 7.30pm.
