"I know it’s difficult. You’ve obviously been a good friend to her but it’s time to let us take over now"
Es and Flo fell fiercely in love in the eighties
They've been living as secret lovers ever since
As Es becomes more forgetful around their home, an unexpected carer arrives
Who sent this woman?
And can they trust her?
As the outside world comes crashing in, Flo faces the hardest battle of her life – to hold on to the woman she loves
Coloured with memories of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp – where Es and Flo first met as activists - Es & Flo is a sharply observed, deeply compassionate drama that celebrates an older lesbian relationship, women coming together to fight for what's right, and the healing power of chosen family
Opening at The Kiln Theatre, London in June 2023
