"Glasgow, the 1970s. Martha and Amie are old neighbours, trapped in their decaying tenement and cut off from family and friends.
With the present closing in and the future uncertain, Martha and Amie's real companions are the past and their memories of ordinary lives peopled by extraordinary characters and their struggles and triumphs.
I Didn't Always Live Here is a compassionate and heart-rending journey into the forgotten lives of the dispossessed and elderly, as well as an uplifting journey into the human spirit's capacity to cope with financial hardship and personal loss. I Didn't Always Live Here was first performed at the Citizens' Theatre, Glasgow in 1967, directed by Michael Meacham, with Irene Sunters, Rosamond Burne, Anne Kidd and Dermot Tuohy.
It was also produced at Dundee Rep in 1973. This production is the English premiere and the first UK production since 1973."
