Three women are locked away in the 1940's for their illicit loves. For decades they relive their faltering memories amidst the drugs and brutality of the asylum. In the hospital's hair salon they seek solace, the radio and endings to their untold stories.

Visually stunning blend of physicality and text based on true accounts. This new production from Redcape Theatre is directed by Herald Angel award winner Andrew Dawson.

'Beautiful and touching. Mind-blowing theatre that tackles the appalling nature of long-buried events.' ***** ThreeWeeks Brighton

'Effortlessly fuses highly visual theatre with text to wonderful effect. Genuinely funny; incredibly moving.' South Street Arts
