Bold Girls Summary


Bold Girls by Rona Munro

It's 1991 in West Belfast. With their husbands either locked up or killed, Marie, Cassie and Nora are just trying to get on with their lives, despite the bombs, burning buses and soldiers trampling the flower beds. Life must go on - after all, there's still laundry to do and kids to feed. But when a mysterious young woman turns up on Marie's doorstep and disrupts their girls' night out, the devastating revelations which ensue will shatter dreams and threaten their friendship irrevocably. Sharply funny, moving, yet never shying from the harsh realities of life during the Troubles, the award-winning Bold Girls announced Rona Munro as one of the best playwrights of her generation. This celebration of women's strength under siege was first seen in 1990, and this new edition was published alongside the revival at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, in June 2018.
