Imagine the proverbial English afternoon tea setting in which there's a gathering of 'we women'. Boring, trivial, saccharine afternoon? Not with Carla and Lulu in full flight, talking relationships, personal history and death. A biting, sarcastic interlude, highlighting the hypocrisy inherent in the communications of our species. Written in 1982, it features the two tart widows enjoying afternoon tea not long after the death of their husbands. It is black comedy full of witty but vicious repartee. Their deceased spouses are not spared, and many are the victims of their acid gossip. The play is not without some bizarre layers.
