This Script, Paperback / softback Book

This Script Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Jenny Lindsay is one of Scotland’s most lauded spoken-word poets. This Script is her most thematically ambitious and poetically playful work to date.

The collection invites us to question the schisms in our ‘isms’, the relationship between the individual and the collective, and ageing in our gendered world. It asks if it is possible to rewrite our scripts on our own. With Jenny Lindsay’s trademark wit and lyrical deftness, This Script is a delving into complex and turbulent contemporary waters, with an ultimate striving for solidarity, empathy, love.

The stage show, This Script and Other Drafts, tours the UK from May 2019.
