McGonagall's Chronicles by Gary McNair
Part of Latitude Festival 2019
I'm in love with a man from Dundee
Though he lived 100 years before me
He was a poet
He was aware of this
I think he was brilliant
But not everyone would agree
His name was Sir William Topaz McGonagall.
His life I will now attempt to chronicle.
A biography of the late Dundonian poet - Sir William Topaz McGonagall written in 'almost rhyming verse'- the only way to honour the great Dundonian man who has come to be known as the world's worst poet.
Written and performed by multiaward winning Gary McNair. Directed by Live Theatre Newcastle's artistic director Joe Douglas with original live music from Frightened Rabbit's Simon Liddell.
