6 – 11 September 1993

This award winning play is about four generations of women growing up in England during this century.

“A warm, poignant elegy about growing up, growing old and growing or not growing wise. It’s about debts and responsibilities; the grim burden of puritan inheritance; and how it takes generations to learn about the value of real feeling.” – London Sunday Times
