It is not by the great shortcomings that love is killed.
From quite small and almost imperceptible faults.
Adapted from a poem, this play pulls you through twenty years of hope, despair, anger and love. A woman surviving amid the havoc wreaked by her husband’s alcoholism. With shattering honesty and the precision-like skill of a surgeon it cuts to the heart of the relationship and lays her hard-won truths at our feet.
‘… superbly acted by Gillian Hanna and Mary McCusker, only adding to the air of authenticity and penetrating understanding which distinguishes the play.’
Joy Hendry The Scotsman Feb 1990
‘Monstrous Regiment… provide male sensibilities with uncomfortable fodder, but the discomfort is of the challenging and ultimately salutary variety.’
Harry Eyres The Times Feb 1990
