Sub-titled, ironically, ‘The Power of Romance’ this play tracks the journey of three young country women to the city, marriage, pregnancy, desertion by husbands, and descent into prostitution (owing to a recession), and jail. It is a mirror image of White with Wire Wheels: concentrating on the women, while one male actor plays numerous roles. Each scene is ironically or comically titled, and is interlarded with music: a ‘history’ of rock & roll from ‘Peggy Sue’ to The Rolling Stones. Written in 1974.
