This acclaimed all-female drama is set in a country home in the French Alps during the Second World War

A unique dinner party unites celebrated writers Agatha Christie, Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas ...

... along with a mysterious guest!

With copious booze flowing, acid-tongued barbs flying, and the threat of global conflict looming, the guests are close to boiling point

Everyone has a confession

And someone has a secret

This thrilling fiction based on fact, is an enthralling, entertaining and ultimately moving portrait of seven exceptional women

It was workshopped Off-Off-Broadway and received an acclaimed digital premiere in 2020, featuring Linda Bassett, Sarah Solemani, Juliet Stevenson and Sophie Thompson

Now available for performance, it provides glorious opportunities for an all-female cast to play some of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century

REVIEWS

"The script is smart and witty ... admirably bold and asks big questions' ~ The Guardian

"Extraordinary and vibrant .. a pertinent play about refuge, safety, hiding, women, survival and love" ~ The Stage

"A high concept play with a lightness of touch ... the discussions about collective responsibility, individual action or inaction in the face of moral wrongdoing, and the question of whether to stay silent or speak out, are deeply resonant" ~ Britishtheatre.com
