So join us on Wed 2 Oct at the amazing Assay Studio, a venue kindly supplied by the RSA, who are also bringing the nibbles and refreshments.

Derek's Homework

BY PHIL THOMSON
@ VOL 23 ON OCT 02, 2019

It is Dundee, 1968. The City Fathers are yet again hell bent on spending money they don't have on changes no one particularly wants - and Derek has to write about his dreams. He is never likely to make it to San Francisco with flowers in his hair. Perhaps the best he can hope for is joining the Fintry Shams.
