The Lemon Princess

Rachael McGill

PaperBack (03 Feb 2005)

"Mad cow disease, Bovine Spongiform Encephalophy. I mean who thinks these names up? I prefer Mad Cow, at least you can still say it when you're pissed. Me daughter says you can get it from mechanically recovered meat products. I asked if that meant the RAC scraping up roadkill and selling it on."

Despite their bickering stage double act on the Leeds pub circuit, Mike and his seventeen year old daughter Becky are TIGHT. She pretends not to laugh at his jokes, he pretends not to encourage her singing career, they nick each other's fags and moan about their non-existent love lives. Then Becky's behaviour starts to become very unusual...
A fictional play based on the true story of Becky Forber, produced at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
