  • Overview
    It was first performed in 1997 and it is very much set in today's world, with all of the characters facing very contemporary dilemmas and traps. Two of the main characters - Miranda and Emma - were students in the 70s and they grew up in a world which was to some extent more idealistic and less determined by all-pervading capitalist forces and corporations than today. Where they now stand with regard to issues of morality, self-protection and self-expression are questions which are central to the play. The script keeps asking whether the driving enthusiasms of their youth - feminism, socialism, truthful artistic communication - continue to have any validity at all in today's world. But if this is starting to sound as if it might be a bit over serious and worthy, please don't be put off. This is very much a laugh-out-loud funny and earthy piece.
