REVIEW COMMENTS _Each woman has their own song; each woman makes the most of their moment in the spotlight in a poignant yet often humorous play that kept me in mind of the soul-scarring work of the late Tennessee Williams. Only with more laughs._ Barbara Goulden, www.elementarywhatson.com [http://www.elementarywhatson.com] _Ruth Herd gives a powerful performance as Suzanne... She is tough, she is tender and when she is finally pushed to the edge to tell some truths of her own, she is magnificent. _Nick Le Mesurier, Leamington Courier. ABOUT THE PLAY 3 Women is a funny and frank play by comedian and writer Katy Brand. The story places three generations of women from the same family in a hotel suite on the evening before a wedding. As the evening progresses and the champagne flows, their resentments old and new surface, alongside their family bonds and affections. The play considers their experiences as women of different generations in a funny and engaging way as the wedding approaches. RUNNING TIME Approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes with no interval.    This is an amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.  EDI INFORMATION In line with our EDI policy, we undertake an EDI impact assessment of all our artistic programming. '3 Women' by Katy Brand has a diversity message at its centre, including issues of gender identity. The playwright specifies that one character should be of mixed heritage and the story would be enhanced by looking for multi-ethnic and gender identity fluidity within casting
