Angela and Maxine want to make it to the Top of the Pops in the pursuit of love, casual sex and fame. Everything is going according to plan until Angela is diagnosed with terminal leukaemia.

Like a Virgin Summary

Like a Virgin by Gordon Steel

A romp through the bubble-gum years of teenage life. Angela and Mazine, besotted with Madonna, play truant from school, form a band, attempt to write songs and, with hairbrushes in hand, live out their adolescent dreams of becoming famous. Meanwhile Angela's mother, Viv, struggles to come to terms with her marriage break-up and her daughter's explosive lifestyle, as the play rollercoasters through hope, sex, ambition, despair, and, most of all, love.
