Modern Girls in Bed

When life gets too hard for Ally and Petra they decide to go to bed, John and Yoko style – except not for ‘Peace’ – forever.

But something strange is going on in the house, and taking a stand proves harder than they thought. Kate Sheppard won’t stop bossing them around, Katherine Mansfield keeps making demands, and Heni Pore is going into labour. As things take a darker turn for Ally, will the women of her world come together or fall apart?

A razor-sharp, poignant collision of historical heroines and present-day family politics.  A play for anyone who knows that women are complex and courageous propagators of change who can also watch a lot of Netflix.
