WHO NEEDS STEPHEN KING? by Steve Dimmer

£4.00

In this black comedy PEGGY & PAT have been partners for many years. PEGGY’s decline in health means she has had to enter a care home. Not only does she have many physical health problems but her personality fluctuates between moments of lucidity and confusion, not helped by the fact that her attitude makes her play games with everyone she encounters. Late one morning PAT visits her and experiences this until her tolerance reaches breaking point. The play examines the relationship between the two women, exploring themes of love, loyalty and the situations the elderly have to endure as they reach the end of their life.
