ABOUT THE PLAY

COMEDY

A fast and furious comedy about the lengths we will go to when our backs are against the wall.

Aiden and Dee are on the verge of losing it all. They’ve had to rent out their home to some rough shower from Dublin and move their family into their nearly bankrupt convenience store. But salvation may have arrived in the form of local battleaxe Gertie Graham. She has their ticket out of the poorhouse – they just need to get their hands on it without her knowing.

It takes some time before Mrs Daldry and Mrs Givings, whose curiosity about her husband’s methods leads to a session of mutual experimentation conducted with embarrassed giggles, can admit that the sensations aroused by the doctor’s electrified implement are pleasurable rather than alarming. And when Mrs Givings’ wet nurse, Elizabeth, gently suggests that the feelings they describe are the same ones some women experience in bed with their husbands, they respond with stupefied silence, followed by dismissive laughter.
