Judith leaves her ex-boyfriend a desperate message on his answerphone saying that she is not coping with their break-up, that she has brought some razor blades and some henna in order to either slash her wrists or dye her hair and she might be pregnant

However, it is his new partner, Ros, who hears the message and it is she that rushes to Judith's bedsit

An evening of emotion, combined with subtle humour, ensues that will conclude with the two women, despite their differences and rivalry, finding friendship and gaining something positive from each other

Henna Night, by the acclaimed author of Sitting Pretty, premièred at the Chelsea Theatre, London in 2001
