A Wedding Story
'A spry if wintry comedy about a lesbian, a wedding-day bonk, and a mother who contracts Alzheimer's... It dares to find failure and frivolity (a sure sign of dramatic honesty) in the face of domestic hell. Funny, frank and churning by turns, this struck me as a lyrical new play about the unlyrical business of coping when real life knocks on the door.' Daily Express
Winner of the TMA Best New Play award and Eileen Anderson Central Television Award for Best Play.
