    1983
  • Setting
    USA (1980s) - a snowy evening in a small town in Massachusetts
  • Overview
    Part of WIN/LOSE/DRAW (see separate listing), a collection of three short plays, each with two female roles.

    Two secret gorgers meet in a hotel room while attending a women’s conference. Annmarie is a simple country girl married to a mechanic, in direct contrast to Delia, a brassy city-dweller whose husband is a wealthy businessman. Inevitably their conversation gets round to their favourite topic - food. However, the funnier their exchanges become, the more we are made poignantly aware of the deprivation and disappointments which have led them to compensate with compulsive over-eating.
