Four women hope to set up a local writers group at the instigation of Fran, a writer for a local newspaper. She is joined by statuesque PE teacher Penny, the shy young librarian Janet, and anxious Annie. They put together a play about the ancient East Anglian queen Boadicea a woman who was perhaps justifiably very, very annoyed about the wrongs inflicted upon women of her time.
This 2007 play is light-hearted and funny and has a lot to say about modern women and their relationships.
Written by Ade Morris. Directed by Jo Kearns.
In the week preceeding the play, our director Jo spoke with Sarah Gorrell on BBC Radio Sussex. They talk about the play, the Players in lockdown, community theatre more broadly, and more.
