Three women united by blood, divided by generation.

Katy Brand’s honest and hilarious play about female bonding, opens at the Abbey Theatre this week. 

 

Here’s to female family bonding and buried resentment! 3Women, by Katy Brand (Peep Show, Nanny McPhee, Have I Got News) takes a sharp and funny look at the consequences of the generation gap on our attitudes, cultural expectations and family dynamic.

 

When a mother, daughter and granddaughter, separated by language and attitudes, gather on the eve of a family wedding, what will be revealed, and will the three generations of women find a path to redemption? Affection, irritation and downright incomprehension make this an entertaining insight into the strange dynamics of families. Everyone else’s of course, not ours!

 

Suzie Major, who has performed many principal roles in productions with the Company of Ten, as well as at many other local theatres, says, ‘I’m really looking forward to getting my teeth into the part of Eleanor, a bitter sharp-tongued alcoholic with a compelling dry wit and no verbal filter at all! As drink loosens her tongue we discover the causes of her dissatisfaction, and her resentment over her daughter’s life choices. Although she adores her teenage granddaughter, she is completely nonplussed by her attitude to gender and sex. It is an hilarious study of three generations of women and their different roles in society.’

 

Director Phil Reardon writes, ‘We have had enormous fun bringing this comical play ‘off the page’. Our very talented cast are bringing out the subtlety of this nuanced script and deftly handling the acerbic wit. If you have half as much fun watching this play as we have had making it, you won’t be disappointed.’

 

Performances take place in the Company of Ten Studio from Friday 22–Saturday 30 April at 8:00pm with a matinee on Sunday 24 April at 2:30pm.
