  • Overview
    Mrs Bramson, a bitter, fussy, self-pitying elderly woman, resides in a remote part of Essex, England, with her intelligent yet subdued niece, Olivia. Mrs Bramson spends all her time complaining while sitting in a wheelchair (although it is revealed during the play that she has in fact no disability whatsoever). Her rude, demanding attitude causes her to be thoroughly disliked by her only two servants, Dora, a young, sensitive maid and Mrs Terrence, the cook, as well as Olivia, who also is treated as a servant by her bitter aunt.
