(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)

Weak Teeth by Lynsey May

Performance: Thu 28 Sep – 12:00 UK

From one of Scotland’s most promising new writers comes a blackly comic tale of a family coping with mental illness, infidelity, and extreme toothache. In Weak Teeth, May explores the roots of trauma, through the lens of everyday experience. She’ll talk to us about her road to publication and why it’s only human to fear losing your bite.
