Donna Disco

  • Date:

by Lee Mattinson

‘A tour de force of writing, acting and directing…’ *****(Three Weeks)

‘Nails the breathless mood of being fourteen…like Carrie re-written by Morrissey’

Donna is fourteen, clumsy and fat. She’s bland, bespectacled and, if she’d ever heard of The Beautiful South, she’d adore them.
She also has a new school project, to source a stranger’s story and present her findings at the annual Christmas Pageant. Donna takes it upon herself to befriend the colourful cross-dressing butcher from downstairs.
When her mother goes AWOL and an innocent crush on a local pretty boy goes hideously wrong, Donna’s world begins to disband and the disco that plays in her heart is in danger of grinding to a glittering, gobsmacking halt.
