Bank holiday weekend in an old people’s home and there are no staff in attendance. Three women, Emmy, Sophia and Vera are enjoying their independence. One cantankerous, one perceptive, one losing her memory. All of them vulnerable, but with dreams, delusions, illusions and strategies that help them survive. These are threatened when young Kate, who is lost, arrives. What happens over the weekend will change all their lives, as fact and fantasy mingle dangerously.
“The work of Jenny McLeod shows thought, humour and characterisation… . Her people are distinct and individual in their pride and defiance, their sudden eruptions of jealousy and insecurity only too real.”
Birmingham Evening Post Oct 1988
‘Beautifully brought to life by impeccable performances.’
