|Four-time Oscar Nominee Marsha Mason stars alongside Brenda Meaney and Lauren O’Leary in this hilarious and poignant debut play by Elaine Murphy, which won the top prize at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival when it premiered in 2009.
One year can bring extraordinary change; just ask Amber, Lorraine and Kay, three generations of North Dublin women who find themselves suddenly facing the unexpected. Young Amber’s case of indigestion – or perhaps it’s a brutal hangover? – grows into something more, while her mother Lorraine discovers salsa dancing as therapist-suggested self-care. Grandmother Kay, “on the wrong side of sixty, but not dead yet,” struggles with a personal itch while adjusting to life as a caretaker for her beloved Gem. As the year passes, the women confront their individual challenges with courage and humor, finding strength in one another and discovering the beauty and complexity of family.
