Glasgow Theatre: This Wide Night, The Tron until 15th March, 2014
This Wide Night
Written by CHLOE MOSS
Directed by DAVID GREIG
WITH ELAINE C.SMITH + JAYD JOHNSON
You wouldn’t think I’m a free woman, would ye? Twelve f*****’ years inside an’ I’m still not free. Not properly.
Marie and Lorraine were cell-mates, but then Marie got out. When Lorraine turns up at Marie’s bedsit, the foundation of their friendship suddenly seems very fragile indeed. In prison, everything was simple, but in the precarious and frightening world outside there are no rules. It’s very easy to get lost. By turns funny, truthful, tender and sad, This Wide Night is a study of two women with nothing but each other to hold on to.
Some people are rich and some people are poor. Some people’s mothers work in Greggs and some don’t. Not everyone can be alright, Marie. That isn’t how things work.
Commissioned and first produced by Clean Break at Soho Theatre, London on Wednesday 30 July 2008.
Previews £8 | Tue-Thu + Sat Matinee £12 (£8) | Fri + Sat £16 (£12)
