1981. Coventry, city of Two Tone and Ska, is riven with battles between skinheads and young Asians. Photographer Baz - 'too Paki to be white, too gora to be desi' - is capturing the conflict on film. Unemployed graduate Maia-serial champion of liberal causes-is pregnant with a mixed-race child. Neither can afford to let the racists win. They must take a stand. A stand that will cost lives.

About the Author:

Catriona Troth was born in Scotland and grew up in Canada before coming back to the UK. She has now lived in the Chilterns longer than she has ever lived in anywhere, a fact that still comes as a surprise. After more than twenty years spent writing technical reports at work and fiction on the commuter train, Catriona made the shift into freelance writing. She now writes a regular column for Words with Jam literary magazine, researches and writes articles for Quakers in the World and tweets as @L1bCat. She is very proud to be a member of the Triskele Books author collective. Her writing explores themes of identity and childhood memory.

Review:

"Ghost Town transported me back to a time (late 70's early 80's) when I was young and like a lot of my contemporaries found my life shaped by bigger events around us. It was an era when skin heads and racism led to many confrontations and a deep anger which was the catalyst of an exploration of identity and making a stand. I would not have entered the Theatre if it wasn't for those years and the coming together of many of us and the explosion of culture and music that has evolved and endured. Catriona captures these young hearts, full of hope and love and fight. I found myself rooting for Baz and Maia right the way through, and came away with my own memories and humming all the songs from The Specials." Sudha Bhuchar, Founder of Tamasha Theatre; actor and playwright.
