The debut play from Katy Brand will make its world premiere at the Trafalgar Studios from the 15th May, directed by Michael Yale.

From generation to generation, from Mother to Daughter, this female-led play explores what it means to be a woman in the 21st century and the consequences of the generational gap on our attitudes, cultural expectations and family dynamic. From wedding celebrations to relationship disillusionment, 3 Women is razor-sharp funny and caustically irresistible.

3Women explores the differing relationships between  three generations of the same family, brought together in one hotel room, in a darkly comic  exploration of what it means to be a woman.

The cast for the production will be led by Anita Dobson as Eleanor, Debbie Chazen (Suzanne), Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Laurie), and Oliver Greenall (Waiter).

Talking about the news Katy Brand said: “3Women is a play I have been hoping to write for several years, but now that feminism and women’s rights are at the very forefront of the global conversation, I wanted to really explore those issues from the point of view of three generations of women, and how they interact and intersect within the same family. These movements are not so straightforward as the media would sometimes have us believe but wrapped up in the chaotic and all-too-human lived experiences of real women, from the Suffragettes to those who currently campaign for trans-gender rights.  We are all simply trying our best to be ‘modern women’ (whatever that means), making mistakes, and blundering on as best we can!”

The production is set to feature designs by Zahra Mansouri, lighting by Nic Farman, and is produced by Stage Traffic Productions.

3Women will play at the Trafalgar Studios from the 15th May until the 9th June. To book tickets visit ATG Tickets.
