Was Spring

Three women, named Kitty, Kath and Kit. At first you assume grandmother, mother and daughter, but gradually it becomes clear that the three are actually one women thinking back on her life. Kitty (Clare Coulter) is the feisty elder, still pissed off with the world. Kath ( Caroline Gillis) is her middle aged self, trying to forget her past, and Kit ( Jessica Moss) is the young woman, still romantic and hoping the world will treat her well, despite having no evidence to support that hope.
I found the play fascinating, but depressing. It definitely needed great acting and fortunately all three actors were excellent.
Daniel MacIvor gets into the heads of his characters and creates memorable women.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    The performances were excellent and generally I thought the author did a great job with the dialogue and characters.I did think the middle self fit less well than the old and young versions; I do not think it was the performance, though; I think it is in the writing.Still, very well done, interesting and entertaining.
