“Fine new comedy, by turns hilarious, dark and moving” —Telegraph
“[A] beautifully observed script—threaded through with such crisp humour” —Time Out
“Every day I’ve worn a mask. You won’t have noticed…But then one day. It began to chip…”
Forty years of respectable marriage should have prepared Joyce for respectable widowhood. She, however, has other ideas—and a secret life of champagne, strippers, and chance encounters unfolds in this tender comedy. For 30 years she has done her domestic duty—played the part her husband, mother, father and daughter thought appropriate. Now she is free and her eyes open to a whole new world of possibilities… New voice Sarah Wooley makes her main stage debut following successful plays at the National Theatre Studio, Theatre 503 and BBC Radio.
Sarah Wooley studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama/Glasgow University. She is currently writing a play about John Osborne, Tony Richardson, Jocelyn Rickards and George Devine for Radio 4. She has been on attachment at the Royal Court and NT Studio. Oberon published her play, They Have Oak Trees in North Carolina.
