Effie's Burning and Swan Song

by Valerie Windsor (Effie's Burning) and Vanessa Brooks (Swan Song)

10 - 13 July 2019

Two contrasting one act plays. One shows us Effie Palmer, a sixty-four-year-old woman with the mental age of a ten-year-old, who since age thirteen has spent her life in mental institutions. The other introduces us to Donald, a sardonic and weary Chartered Surveyor, who after thirty-five years is on his last day before retirement.

Director: Richard Young (Effie's Burning) and Emily Girton (Swan Song)

Production manager: Malcolm Todd
