‘A modern Jacobean revenge tragedy that bleeds poetry and violence.’ – The Guardian
These three striking monologues are a portrait of a town in the shadow of The Bonelands, a filthy abattoir in which men are driven by bestial urges and women are meant for sex and housekeeping. It is a desolate outpost of the present day, a community which the only civilizing attribute is the compulsion to tell a good story.
Olive is unhappily married – a serial slag involved with most of the men in town, including the local pimp, the legendary Inchy Bassey. Tilly is a prostitute envious of Olive’s intimacy with him. Alison is the mother of a brain-damaged child and the wife of one of the many men Olive sleeps with.
In a town that has lost its moral compass, under the watch of thyroid man and his three-eyed dog, three women scrap and scramble through a bloody twenty-four hours of retaliation, reunion and atonement.
Mark O’Rowe, the writer of the multi-award winning play Howie the Rookie and the film Intermission.
