THE YEAR NICK McGOWAN CAME TO STAY by Rebecca Sparrow

Directed by Cilla Scott

It's 1989, the end of the decade that re-defined BIG hair. Everyone's wearing fingerless gloves, legwarmers and ra-ra skirts while roller-skating to the DIRTY DANCING soundtrack. It's the year Barbie turned 30, the Berlin Wall fell, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY and Kylie and Jason took the UK by storm! Meanwhile in Brisbane, teenager Rachel Hill is slowly losing her cool. In this prequel to Rebecca Sparrow's smash-hit novel THE GIRL MOST LIKELY, Nick McGowan comes to stay in Rachel's family home. Sparks begin to fly as secrets are slowly shared!
