Jenny Lindsay is one of Scotland's most lauded spoken-word poets. This Script is her most thematically ambitious and poetically playful work to date.

The collection invites us to question the schisms in our 'isms', the relationship between the individual and the collective, and ageing in our gendered world. It asks if it is possible to rewrite our scripts on our own. With Jenny Lindsay's trademark wit and lyrical deftness, This Script is a delving into complex and turbulent contemporary waters, with an ultimate striving for solidarity, empathy, love.

The stage show, This Script and Other Drafts, tours the UK from May 2019.

Review quote

Praise for This Script

Salena Godden: A new body of work that is tackling the big subjects of today, sex and gender and feminism and death: this is of the now and here and I urge everyone to go see this work, this bold voice, beautiful heart and truly remarkable talent.

Luke Wright: This Script is sharply written, charmingly performed, and needs saying.

Becca Inglis, The Wee Review One of this year's most necessary spoken-word performances

Dave Hook aka Solareye: This Script is as well constructed as it is culturally significant, tackling difficult-to-navigate topics in ways that engage and challenge the audience in equal amounts. Honest, intelligent and thought-provoking.

Kevin Williamson: Fierce, intelligent and moving

Magi Gibson: An explosive blend of the personal and political delivered with linguistic dexterity, energy and wit

Praise for Jenny Lindsay

Andrew Eaton-Lewis, The Scotsman Defiant. Eloquent. Inspiring.
