Bold Girls

by

Rona Munro

SYNOPSIS

Set in Belfast in the 1990s, Rona Munro’s award-winning play, Bold Girls, is about the domestic lives of three working-class women whose husbands have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities. Their bonds of friendship and family ties, crucial to their survival, are shattered by the appearance of a mysterious young girl….

Despite the grim background, this is a play full of heartwarming and humorous moments – a play about friendship, loyalty, laughter, betrayal, hate and love – a play about people not politics.
In 1991, Bold Girls earned Rona Munro the London Evening Standard’s Most Promising Playwright Award, and in New York the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn Award for a female dramatist whose works represent outstanding quality for the English-speaking theatre.
