Review: Maggie May at Leeds Playhouse

Wednesday 11th May 2022 at Leeds Playhouse (Courtyard Theatre). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Who am I then?” “Who else would I be?” Frances Poet’s Maggie May takes this idea of an endangered sense of identity and builds on it layer over layer until we see the true weight of its significance.
