The Swan Theatre Company presents

By Hugh Whitemore
Directed by Robert Graydon

Monday 17th to Saturday 22nd January 2011


Stevie's story unfolds as she addresses the audience directly and through flashbacks with the help of a narrator. It touches on her experiences of friendship, love and her interest in human mortality and especially on her relationship with her elderly Aunt, past romantic relationships and the fame she received in her later years.

Does Stevie escape her dull, middle-class suburban existence through her poetry or does her dull, middle-class existence allow her poetry to flourish? Throughout her life she never truly leaves the small house in Palmers Green.

The Swan has presented a number of Hugh Whitemore's plays, including 'Pack of Lies', 'Breaking the Code' and 'A Letter of Resignation', all very well received.
