Unmarried sisters in their fifties share a London flat. Nina is brisk, dynamic and gainfully employed. Nancy is plump, self conscious and suddenly redundant. Urged to find a hobby, she unwittingly stumbles into a job modeling for eccentric drawing students and their philandering teacher. Initially horrified to discover that life models pose naked, Nancy is unexpectedly liberated by the experience. Though she keeps this activity a secret, her newfound confidence unsettles Nina. The sisters move toward an inevitable confrontation as Nina faces her unhappy past and Nancy glimpses a possible future. This bittersweet play unfolds with humorous twists and turns.
