Four plays, four women, four secrets. Their unveilings, humorous and heartbreaking, reveal uncomfortable truths.
In First Steps by West Linton’s Anita John, and The Other Nathan by retired Borders doctor, Oliver Eade, elderly women surprise and shock their families with long-hidden secrets.
In Give the Dog a Bone a middle-aged woman driven to distraction by an ailing mother, is horrified by her sister’s revelation. The Other Cat (Winner of Segora 2018 International Play Competition) is more of a ‘did it happen?’ than a ‘whodunnit?’ – a dark-yet-playful take on Schrödinger’s famous cat.
