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
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.
