What's The Time, Virginia Woolf?

George and Martha are a typical university couple. He lectures in Martrimonial law and she plays the good house wife.

A Matter for Revenge

The play opens in a cafe where the owner Joan and some of her friends are practising the cha cha for the weekly dance they enjoy. A customer comes in, the dancers leave and Joan serves this lady some freshly baked scones. But this customer Trish is not what she seems and has in fact come to the cafe to exact revenge on Joan for 'stealing' her husband at the dance. Trish brandishes a knife and ties up poor Joan. Great fun and a twist in the tail.
