World Premiere
Traverse Theatre Company in association with Tron Theatre 

It’s 1997. You’re 11 and you’re lonely, sad and scared of doing anything that could cause you to be singled out by the hopeless, angry people in your hometown.

One day, a man appears on telly - mumbling, yet electrifying. He sings: “I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does”. This guy gets it. You become obsessed with him. Later, when you need someone, you write to him. A lot.

It’s 2016, you find those letters and ask yourself: “Has the world changed, or have I changed”. Created by Gary McNair and Gareth Nicholls, returning to the Traverse after their sell-out Festival hit A Gambler’s Guide to Dying, Letters to Morrissey is about confronting the worst thing you’ve done in your life, and hoping that it’s still possible to be a good person.
