When the past has gone wrong, can the future be put right?
Single mum Linda has two grown-up daughters … At least, they should have grown up by now, but somehow they have managed to avoid it.
Ellie has been told she will come to nothing – and has. Lola, with the attention on her sister, has lapsed into long-term immaturity. And their mother shoulders the blame …
When Linda meets playboy Michael, the self-destructive triangle becomes a square and threatens to break apart.
Hurt is the story of ordinary people struggling to find a way forward against the pull of the past.
Lola 20; Linda’s elder daughter
Ellie turns 18 during the play; Linda’s younger daughter
Michael late forties
