Linda Wilde has dedicated her life to changing the world
She's won awards for her efforts, at the same time as working hard to become an inspiring mother, and an independent, loving wife
Now, at 55, she seems to have it all
But Linda isn't satisfied
She's a woman in her prime and she's embarking on her most ambitious plan to date
But beneath the surface, the cracks are starting to show ...
"Old for a woman means worthless. Invisible. Of course we're terrified. You tell us we peak at sixteen and it's downhill all the way from there. Well I haven't worked this hard to be pushed aside at the last hurdle. I refuse to be silenced. I will not disappear. I am Linda Wilde. And I'm still here!"
"This is one that the people will be talking about for the rest of the year. Scrap that, decade" ~ Evening Standard
"It's an important play, which speaks passionately about the many ways society makes mature women invisible" ~ Exeunt
