Winner! Southeastern Theatre Conference New Play Award

This contemporary comedy reveals the hopes, dreams and fears of three elderly ladies who spark their lonely lives by meeting daily in the rest room lounge of an outdated downtown department store

And the crazy and touching events that occur the day one of them is threatened ...

There's Myrah, with a fighting spirit that totters into the absurd

Violet, a leftover from the days of elegance

And Winifred, a wisp of a woman who wanders in and out of reality

A steady stream of bizarre events occur as the ladies seek to protect Winifred from being taken away by her sister Clare - leading to a blockade of the rest room and a final triumph over those who would threaten their fragile freedom


"The women are wonderful characters ...[the play does] an excellent job of balancing humor against the basically pathetic lives of the three main characters" ~ Minneapolis Tribune

"A very funny play of character and situations" ~ Appleton Post Crescent

"Quirky characters, punchy lines and light hearted humor" ~ Driftwood News, Canada

"Hilarious one minute and surpisingly touching the next" ~ Gallery Theatre, California

"Maybe the best comedy is the one that makes you cry. This Ludmilla Bollow script is an almost perfect example of the classic dramatic unities of time and place" ~ Neenah Post Crescent
