In 2005, remarkable events took place in Glasgow when seven teenage girls from all corners of the planet joined forces to mount a campaign to bring back their friend who had been forcibly removed from her home in a Dawn Raid. They became known nationally as The Glasgow Girls.
Driven by a fierce sense of injustice, the girls fight together for the lives of their friend, for their families' rights, for the rights of children. Despite the risks to their own safety, they take on the Scottish Government and English Home Office and, as a team, succeed where adults and politicians often fail.
Glasgow Girls tells the true story of one of the most vocal and powerful pro-asylum seeker campaigning groups in the country, appearing in two television documentaries and hosts of interviews. Glasgow Girls is a brand new life-affirming Scottish musical with seven strong female leads and a vibrant multicultural voice at its heart. The musical promises to be a celebration of Glasgow and the power of teenagers with a cause.
Glasgow Girls will feature all original songs from the diverse talents of Scots-Asian Rapper MCSoomT, electronic dance programmer Patricia Panther and alt-folk from Cora Bissett.
