Letters to Morrissey

Gary McNair

PaperBack (03 Aug 2017)

It’s 1997. You’re 11. You’re sad, lonely and scared of doing anything that would get you singled out by the hopeless, angry people in your hometown. One day you see a man on telly. He’s mumbling, yet electrifying. He sings: 'I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does'. You become obsessed with him. You write to him. A lot.

Letters to Morrissey is the third in a trilogy of often darkly comic works drawing on the joys and struggles of growing up in working class Scotland.

Fringe First Award Winner 2017.

'Funny and touching' Evening Standard ★★★★

'A fine piece of pop criticism; an examination of Morrissey as a role model – working class anti-hero, pub corner poet, a different sort of male role model.' WhatsOnStage ★★★★

'This is the setting for an intense story about a small town 15-year-old coming of age. Rather than girls, his problem is life and especially that of his pal Tony... McNair’s writing and delivery, under the direction of Gareth Nicholls, are impeccable, allowing visitors to enter into the young man’s soul and share his love of Morrissey and the musician’s philosophy.'
