Maggie May

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Leeds Playhouse and Curve production

Maggie May

by Frances Poet  


A world premiere of a witty and joyful family story 

Maggie and Gordon first met in 1971 and have been dancing to the sounds of Cliff Richard, Chairmen of the Board, and Jackson 5 ever since. Now in their sixties, and still very much in love, they’ve been finishing each other’s songs all their marriage. But now Maggie is feeling foggy and some days the songs are all she can remember. Her son and new girlfriend are coming to dinner and her best friend is asking questions.

An extraordinary play about an ordinary Leeds family, balancing the challenges of daily life whilst living with dementia. A heartfelt story of hope by award-winning playwright Frances Poet, Maggie May is an inspiring new play with love, laughter and music.
