In this very funny longer one act, four legendary actresses: Mrs Patrick Campbell, Florence Farr, Janet Achurch and Elizabeth Robins, wait backstage on a blustery night in the year 1896 to perform in a famous production of Ibsen's Little Eyolf. They are having some serious personal problems, they're drinking before the show, there is treachery afoot, and everybody raise their hands who's slept with George Bernard Shaw. A wonderful showcase for four strong, smart actresses.
