Overview

This play, a specified text for Revised Higher English, is the story of three women in war-torn Belfast. Although their men have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities, everyday life must go on. However, the arrival of a disturbing young girl and the revelations which follow threaten to disrupt their friendship.

The main themes are largely domestic - relationships between women and within families, dreams and homemaking. The language is colloquial with Irish idioms, and many contemporary references, and there is a poignant ending. The play is aimed at students of English, particularly those studying Higher Grade English.

In 1991 Rona Munro won the Susan Smith Blackburn Award and "The Evening Standard" Most Promising Playwright Award for "Bold Girls".
