Parentcraft / Too Long an Autumn

by

Stephen Smith / Jimmie Chinn

SYNOPSIS

Parentcraft:
The play takes place in an ante-natal class in contemporary provincial England. Four mothers-to-be (and one father-to-be) arrive to attend class. However the midwife is too busy to address the group, so the five characters are left to chat amongst themselves. An often hilarious conversation proceeds and unpalatable secrets about each character are in turn revealed.

Too Long an Autumn:
​Long Autumn, appropriately named, is a retirement home for theatricals in the autumn of their lives, where euphemism reigns supreme together with a firm belief that elderly equals senile. Into their midst is flung Maisie May, a former music-hall star, too much of a burden for her strait-laced son and daughter-in-law, who do not find Maisie amusing. Maisie and Long Autumn are just beginning to get on each other's nerves, when a breezy impresario arrives....
