The Quinn family live in a Glasgow tenement so poor that the only floor covering is old newspapers.

But Elizabeth Gordon Quinn is indomitable in the face of poverty and rising rents.

Further more she is harbouring a son who is wanted by the police for desertion from his regiment...Set against the background of the Rent Strikes, which saw mass demonstrations on the streets of Glasgow, "Elizabeth Gordon Quinn" is given its first major revival since the success of the premiere production in 1985 at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. "Elizabeth Gordon Quinn" is one of the first offerings of the new National Theatre of Scotland which, after years of planning and dreaming, finally comes into being in Spring 2006.

It is not a building-based theatre, but will tour its plays throughout Scotland and the wider world - and indeed "Elizabeth Gordon Quinn" will tour to six cities.
