Two young women meet, in dramatic circumstances, at their children’s pre-school. An unlikely friendship begins, despite the fact that they have almost nothing in common. Nella is a hard-headed business woman, with a rocky marriage and unreliable childcare. Morag is a stay at home mother married to an Aid worker.
As the friendship develops Nella’s steely exterior begins to crack. Her revelations strike repeated chords with Morag. There are unexplained synchronicities between Nella’s story and her own background.
At the play’s ending more than just a friendship has been forged. The past has been revealed, and lives have been changed.
