Suitable for Adult Groups
Two patients and one other - a patient or visitor? And what happened to the goldfish? A funny, touching play for three mature women.
Millie has come to visit her friend in hospital. Wandering into a ward, she becomes friendly with Annie and Rose, two eccentric, argumentative patients. Things come to a head when Annie accuses Rose of saving up her sleeping pills in order to do away with herself, while Rose accuses Annie of having murdered her mother. The normally meek Millie becomes a surprisingly good judge and jury of Rose and Annie's dispute. At the end, the mystery of Millie's friend is finally solved.
