OUT OF PRINT The Joss Adams Show


Published in Plays of the 70s Volume 1

One of the first new wave plays to raise female consciousness in a movement which was almost entirely male-dominated.

Joss gives a unique insight into the state of mind of a woman with post-natal depression. A savagely comic play whose strength lies in the tension between the comic inappropriateness of the social behaviour and the 'reality' in the mind of the audience—in this case the death of a baby.
