Magnetic North in Sex and God
Drama at Lyth Arts Centre - Magnetic North in Sex and God,
Mon 8th Oct. 8pm. 1 hour, no interval, age 14+
Sex and God is a lyrical, funny and touching play by Linda McLean. Four monologues on faith, lust and family are woven together to tell the stories of four women - each from a different period of the 20th century. Their experiences of family, religion and ambition are shaped by those around them and the times they live in.
This is the latest production from Magnetic North, whose highly acclaimed previous work includes Walden and Pass the Spoon.
