Max Porter: Boyhood image

‘I loved Shy. I finished it elated and tearful[…] changed by the journey.’ So said P J Harvey of Max Porter’s latest novel, widely considered a masterpiece. Fans of Lanny will be entranced by this deeply tender and humane portrait of a troubled teenager. This special event includes a unique performance of Shy with Porter alongside the Citizens Theatre’s WAC Ensemble – Scotland’s first theatre company for theatremakers with care experience.
