In 1967 Pauline died of an overdose, fifty years later Sophie found her diaries. What follows is a brutally honest and joyfully hilarious glimpse into a hundred years of history across three generations of women in one family.
Following rave reviews in Edinburgh, and sold out shows at The Pleasance Islington, this Offie nominated production charts Sophie’s funny, heart-breaking journey against all odds, to tell the story of the women whose shoulders she stands on.
