Additional Info

A gentle, subtle play about two contrasting mothers and daughters-- common, garrulous Mrs. Painter and Patsy, genteel but poor Mrs Burnett and Charlotte. The mothers met over 30 years ago in hospital at the birth of their daughters - but could it be that they were given each other's baby all those years ago?
