Winner! 1990-1991 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
The drama of everyday life in Belfast burning buses, ravaged blocks, gunfire are but offstage events in this stirring play about three women whose men have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities. Chilling themes are off set by many humorous and heart warming moments in this play about people, not politics, which offers excellent acting opportunities.
"Rona Munro's ear for the authentic cut and thrusts of Belfast's unsung heroines is sharp, abrasive and at times downright painful...It is also celebratory and funny." - Daily Mail
"Absorbing, often funny...Exhilarating." - Sunday Telegraph
