               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Daughters Of Eve

    by Tom Casling



Synopsis

Comedy Play Script: 'Daughters Of Eve' by Tom Casling

Six women meet once a year at a remote cottage. Five of them went to school together and are now in their 50s. The sixth is the daughter of one of the school friends who has now passed away. As the play develops it begins to be clear that nowadays they meet often out of guilt and habit, rather than for enjoyment. One of them is their strength, their rock, but the other five are in different states of turmoil.

The six friends are a strange mixture of backgrounds and experiences, On the surface Ginny is a confident, peace-making, ‘leader’ of the group, but proves to be a woman on the edge and in need of all the support she herself so freely handed out to her friends.

Sandra is a nun who has issues with her faith and sexuality and uses the weekend as a retreat to try and work out her feelings. Tess is a somewhat belligerent trouble-maker whose facade covers the secret she needs to share with the rest of the group.

Pauline is the happy go lucky (if somewhat flirty in the past) individual, who turns out to be the rock on which the group leans on for support, and Liz, who is in an emotionally abusive relationship, and is so fragile that she attempts to take her own life.

Youngest of them all, Becki, is not a natural member of the group. She is the daughter of one of the school friends and is there by proxy instead of her late mother.

The self-imposed weekend exile turns into a near disaster as they are cut off because of a freak storm, and to add to the dilemma one member of the group attempts suicide, another reveals a tragic secret, another is struggling with a crisis of sexuality and Becki’s baby decides to arrive unexpectedly. The play was written for an all female cast but males can be used for the support roles if required.
