October One - Act Plays 

Monday 5th October - Saturday 10th October, The Acorn Studio - Titchfield Festival Theatre, Hampshire.


A modern feminist classic, examining the effects of society's objectification of women. Follow as three women
confide in each other, revealing their private fantasies and anxieties.


This play about fear and materialistic longing compares an angrily impoverished waitress and a
philosophical ceramics teacher in the early stages of multiple sclerosis who are sharing a borrowed, run down seaside apartment for the weekend. As they encounter strange visitors including a Pest, a bad memory and Luggage, the Patron Saint of Heavy Burdens.
