AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It's New Year's Eve 1959. Three female friends, (and a ring in), gather to celebrate the dawn of the 1960's, a time filled with the promise of emancipation and change. Sue Ingleton's funny and touching play explores the lives of four women at a time when being childless was synonymous with being frigid, baron, or unattractive. Through humour, popular songs of the era (including 'Where The Boys Are', 'Que Sera Sera', 'White Cliffs Of Dover' and 'Three Coins In The Fountain'), and the bonds of friendships shared and forged, they cope with loss of opportunity and the 50's social expectations of women on the eve of feminism.'
