Meet Maggie, a Scottish single mother of three boys. Set between 1954 and 1976, MAGGIE tells the inspirational tale of a fiery school cleaner living in the mining town of Lanarkshire Scotland. After suffering an unthinkable loss, Maggie must rely on her strength, sense of humour and fiercely loyal group of friends to raise her boys and protect them from the harsh and ever-changing world around them. Based on a true story, MAGGIE features a soul-stirring score by award-winning recording artist Johnny Reid. A tribute to Johnny’s Granny and the people of an almost forgotten generation, this exciting new musical is a celebration of family, community and the joy and laughter that can be found, even in the darkest of times.
Produced in association with Michael Rubinoff, the originating producer of the smash hit musical Come From Away, MAGGIE premieres at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton this spring and features music co-written by Johnny Reid, Matt Murray and Bob Foster, direction and dramaturgy by Mary Francis Moore. This is a story about the strength and unconditional love of a mother and the resilience of a community. MAGGIE is a story that will remind you of the people who made the greatest impact in your life.
