“I’m walking down the street and there’s a door in the fence open and inside there are three
women I’ve seen before.”
Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the back yard. Tea and chaos comes calling!
“Stories of those above ground were told and retold till there were myths of the husband who
cooked feasts, the wife who swam the ocean, the gay lover who could fly, the child who read
minds, the talking dog.”
There will also be a talk during the middle of the run:

The Big Idea is a strand of work launched during Open Court, offering audiences radical thinking and provocative discussion inspired by the work on stage. The Big Idea was devised in order to foster debate and collaboration, bringing together great thinkers and artists from all walks of life to engage with the big ideas of our times, through a series of events and talks. AlixPartners support The Big Idea at the Royal Court Theatre.
