“There is something very interesting in the fact that Caryl has written a play for four women within her age range. The thing I find incredible is its dramatic simplicity ... it is deeply domestic yet within that the form is one of the most challenging things you will ever read” ~ Vicky Featherstone, artistic director of the Royal Court
