With a number one in America and a TV series in the UK, at 20 Lulu is a global star. But has she lost herself in an image others have created for her? Preparing to sing a song she hates at the 1969 Eurovision song contest, she relives events that got her there and decides she has to take control.

The Monarch of the Glen
While the Roydes are very much creatures of the 20th century, their hosts still cling to the old ways: Donald MacDonald of Ben Nevis, the 23rd clan chieftain and Laird of Glenbogle Castle, is fiercely protective of his way of life, the land that he loves and the MacDonald spirit. Being more than a little cash-strapped, however, Ben Nevis (as he is also known) is not above trying to forge a match between heiress Myrtle and one of his brawny sons.
But when a group of English hikers turn up and trample all over his grouse moor, and a trespassing nationalist poet seems set to capture Myrtle’s affections, Ben Nevis’ plans come under attack on two fronts – and he’s never one to underreact when things don’t go his way . . .
The cast includes three of our BAA clients, Neshla Caplan, Stephanie McGregor and Deirdre Davis. The run begins 26th October.
