Baggage 2 female. A One Act Play for our February 2025 Theatre Supper Evenings. Performances will be 14th and 15th February 2025

Sandra, a middle aged middle class housewife and mother of 3, faints whilst waiting for a bus, on a bench after shopping. She wakens to find that Annie, a bag lady, about her age, is going through her belongings. Thinking that she is being robbed, Sandra becomes aggressive but is mollified when Annie explains that she is only trying o find some form of identity so that she could help.
There follows a series of conversations between the two women as they wend their way to Sandra’s home, stopping off on a short cut through a cemetery. In the course of the conversations dark secrets are revealed, the nature of which brings the two women closer together.
The two eventually find a common ground with some interesting results.

SANDRA WINSFORD  50s , she is middle class and comfortably off and on the surface her well ordered life seems enviable (she could be accused of being a little smug), She is fully occupied in looking after her husband and three midult children and spends hours worrying about the trivia of life.

ANNIE LOMAX. Aged 50 to 70. She is a bag lady and could be Irish or Scottish but if done the accent must be soft and convincing. She has had a hard life and the conversation with Sandra reveals that she has been in some very dark places. She has few illusions about her fellow men and women but a surprisingly philosophical and optimistic view of her situation

Knock and Wait 3 Male 3 Female, this too is a One Act Play for our February 2025 Theatre Supper Evenigs (14th and 15th February 2025)
