This will be to a smaller capacity audience in recognition of Covid-safety considerations.

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. 

Reviews of the play:

"Many snappy returns in Katy Brand's barbed drama..." The Guardian

Insightful and funny...I really recommend this." Jane Garvey, Women's Hour Radio 4.

"One of the funniest pieces of new writing we've had the pleasure to sit through this year" Mostagigz

This is an amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
