Easter Week 2
Fifty-eight year old Fran Lamb has put an ad in the local paper about a women’s writers’ group that she wants to start. Two turn up. Together they form a motley trio. They decide to devise a performance about Boadicea, a ‘great lady’. What they really end up encountering is the fact that each of them has a secret, which is brought out through their friendship. This is a witty and poignant story about the power of sharing stories.
As ‘the fear’ looms pre-exams, this is the ideal play to remind you of the other important things in life...like love and laughter.
Praise for the original performance at The Watermill: ‘Richly entertaining exploration of most of the strengths and just a few of the weaknesses of the female sex’ – The Stage
‘One of the warmest, funniest and most touching explorations of the female psyche that you could wish to see’ – The Henley Standard
‘This play is a brilliant piece of writing by Ade Morris with line after line of hilarity’ – The Newbury Weekly News
