Award-winning comedian Katy Brand has made her playwriting debut with 3Women, now running at Trafalgar Studios until 9 June 2018. Consensus? This is hopefully the first of many more plays to come from Brand. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite review highlights for the play and its three female leads – Anita Dobson, Debbie Chazen, Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Time to get booking before it’s sold out!
3Women explores the relationships between three generations of the same family – grandmother Eleanor (65), mother Suzanne (40) and granddaughter Laurie (18), played by Anita Dobson, Debbie Chazen and Maisie Richardson-Sellers respectively. On the eve of Suzanne’s wedding, they’re brought together in a hotel room for a night of tensions and revelations in this darkly comic and pertinent exploration of what it means to be a woman.
From generation to generation, mother to daughter, this female-led play explores what it means to be a woman in the 21st century and the consequences of the generational gap on our attitudes, cultural expectations and family dynamic. It’s directed by Michael Yale, with designs by Zahra Mansouri and lighting by Nic Farman. The premiere is produced by Stage Traffic Productions, who had a hit at the same address last year with Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company, transferred from the Finborough Theatre.
3Women runs from 15 May to 9 June 2018 at London’s Trafalgar Studios, 14 Whitehall, London SW1A 2DY. Performances are Monday to Saturdays at 7.45pm, with Thursday and Saturday matinees at 3pm. Tickets are priced £20-£30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
