Maggie and Brigid are two friends who haven’t seen each other for decades. When their lives reach a turning point, they both turn to baking….and baking brings them back together….as well as drinking….and
arguing….and making up.
Theirs is a friendship of tenderness and venom. And a great deal of humor. When Maggie suggests taking
a holiday to Rome to see the Pope, Brigid agrees and the two women set off on a road trip that will define who they are and how they relate to each other.
This is a story of love and loss, life and death, friendship and estrangement. There is pushing and shoving, a few sharp objects, and some words that are only fit for actresses.
A hilarious, compelling and moving original play!
Not to be missed!
