Description
This haunting feminist play about two eras of women, one living in 1908 and the other in the present, won the London critics's Most Promising Playwright award for the author. A romantic futility pervades the lives of a present day cartographer and waitress, their Edwardian counterparts and respective mother figures as they experience heartbreak, childbirth and aging.
