Standing Wave: Delia Derbyshire in the 1960s
Standing Wave: Delia Derbyshire in the 1960s is a biographical play by Nicola McCartney based on Delia's life which was performed by the Reeling and Writhing theatre group from 7-23 October 2004 at the Tron theatre in Glasgow.
The review site for the production contains a few biographical snippets: "a brief and disastrous marriage to a striking Yorkshire miner" in 1974 when "at only 37, she was beginning the long battle with alcohol and depression that would shadow the remaining three decades of her life."
- The play had a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in 2004 but was not captured on video
- Nicola McCartney holds the rights to the script, which makes fascinating reading.
