'Lou is a woman with a fresh mission. It involves three of her old school mates, forgetting the husband she's just separated from, and an odyssey into the Australian outback. These warm, wise, feisty, fabulous 50-something women are all approaching the 'Age of Invisibility' - but they won't go quietly into that gentle night. . .
'The comedic audio drama by esteemed writer Nikki Gemmell (author of 'The Bride Stripped Bare') is a pertinent multicast story about female friendship and embracing the next phase of life. 'The Invisible Women's Society' explores the experience of middle-age female invisibility through the eyes of the newly separated Lou and her friends as they return to the dustbowl hometown they'd long left behind. Tensions mount as a school reunion goes awry, betrayals resurface, old flames are revisited and visits to estranged parents get awkward.
'These women all become someone else as the trip into this desert heartland progresses. Perhaps they are becoming the people they'd always wanted to be. Looser, braver, wilder,. Because the Age of Invisibility has been bearing down upon them all. Ungrateful kids, husbands (or not quite), being ignored at bars, sexual discrimination and job restlessness be damned, these women won't go out with a whimper. The time has come to ROAR.'
