The Fish That Winked, Elizabeth MacLennan


Elizabeth MacLennan was a renowned actor, theatre-maker and co-founder of the 7:84 theatre companies, described by the Guardian's Michael Billington as 'one of those passionate, pioneering women who periodically erupt to change the British theatre'.

Her debut poetry collection, 'The Fish That Winked' was published shortly before her death from leukaemia in 2005. 

It takes us from the Scottish Highlands to the Greek islands, creating a moving, lyrical, often humorous account of her personal and political journeys.
