Following on from the success of the highly amusing production of “The Female of the Species” (2014) the Players have chosen another work by the same author, Diana Murray-Smith, for a bar production which will run on 10th, 11th and 12th of November this year.

The piece consists of a number of funny, often touching  monologues by variously “the teenager”, “the bride to be”, “the exhausted young mother”, “the lonely widow” and the “the cacti fancier”….

Each piece is beautifully judged in their mixture of comedy and deprecation, each of these pieces offers hilarious comedy based on acute observation of each of the five women’s lives.  In her production notes, the author writes that she hopes the monologues will be performed “with a universal delight in the passionate, miserable, hilarious wildness of women”.  Our talented cast are relishing their rise to this expectation.

Highly praised in the national press when the collection was premiered in 2004 – ” As observant as anything in Alan Bennett’s “Talking Heads” – The Guardian.
