A Passionate Woman

  • Show Information

Liza Goddard (Bergerac, Yes Honestly) plays Betty, a passionate, doting mum who finds it hard to accept that her son is leaving home to get married.

On the morning of her son’s wedding, Betty retreats to her attic where she relives her long-lost youth and the love affair she had in the 1960s. Surrounded by her memories and ghosts from her past Betty finds herself torn between a husband she never loved, a son about to leave and the man she shared a passionate affair with.

Kay Mellor (In the Club, Band of Gold) was inspired to write this provocative and heartfelt play after her own mother confessed to having an affair with a Polish neighbour before she was born.
