Margaret Saves Scotland by Val McDermid (The Lemon Tree)

Part of A Play, a Pie and a Pint at The Lemon Tree

Margaret Holt embarked on a holiday romance with a difference and it changed her life. Falling in love with Scotland filled her with a burning desire to liberate the country from the English yoke. But what could a nine-year-old lass from Yorkshire do to make that dream come true? Join Margaret as she embarks on the journey of a lifetime.

Val McDermid is an international bestseller who has won many awards for her work. She began her career as a professional writer more than 35 years ago with her play, Like a Happy Ending. But it proved a false start and she turned instead to prose fiction. 31 novels later (not to mention two non-fiction books, a children's picture book, short story collections and many radio dramas) she's returned to the stage. Queen Margaret of Scotland  grew out of a true story told by a friend who died two years ago. This play is a tribute to her memory.

Written by Val McDermid | Presented in association with Aberdeen Performing Arts & Oran Mor
