About Book

In the small Ayrshire town of Stewarton, the school holidays are like a microwave. So much happens and it all happens so fast.

Norma Gordon has got a problem. She's going to be in big trouble if her dad finds out. Norma needs to find Rab McGuire fast. Her big brother Barry's no use. He's in love for the first time. Michelle Montgomery loves Barry too but her mum and Aunt Alice just won't let them be together.

This summer everything's changing in Stewarton.

The Wall premiered at Tron Theatre, Glasgow, in February 2008, in association with Borderline Theatre Company. It is the first part of a trilogy that includes The Ducky and The Chooky Brae.
