This is the story of Derek Douglas (Jim) as he was growing up in Central Scotland through the 1970’s. It’s a look back at when life was a lot simpler.
You left the house at 8.00am and came back when it got dark, no questions asked, no wondering where you got fed, just that you were out with your pals. A time when the most difficult question was “Am I getting a slow dance at the Friday Disco”? When everybody and nobody looked after you. A kick in the bum and a slap across the head was how we were disciplined. A time when the new year party lasted 3 days and you couldn’t see across the room for cigarette smoke and somehow you got 60 people into a 2 bedroom house. This was written as a labour of love about a family now sadly mostly all gone. It’s about the seemingly highest high and lowest low that a 70’s teenager went through.
We hope you enjoy it and laugh and cry along with the cast as we take you on Derek’s journey.
