This award winning play is about four generations of women growing up in England during this century.
"A warm, poignant elegy about growing up, growing old and growing or not growing wise. It's about debts and responsibilities; the grim burden of puritan inheritance; and how it takes generations to learn about the value of real feeling." - London Sunday Times
"Both demanding and rewarding in its complexity." - London Independent
"Humorously and compassionately, the play explores the emotional inheritance each woman receives from the other ... unpeeling the characters to their bones, on occasions with such intensity that I cried." - London Guardian
"Totally engrossing, warm, funny, [and] human.... Ms. Keatley refuses to preach about a woman's nature and her place in the world." - Manchester England News
"Like Caryl Churchill's Top Girls, this is a play which will influence the next generation of writers." - City Limits
