Lent Week 3
In a drowsy Spanish courtyard, Marguerita recounts the mystery surrounding the death of her child. Meanwhile another mother is caught in a battle of wills with her daughter who has fallen in love with a girl. Bryony Lavery’s surreal and atmospheric play explores the threshold between love and oppression, past and present and the complexity of motherhood. As the old woman’s tale unfolds, we learn the darker secrets of her past and are forced to reconcile disgust and pity.
