POSTPONED Online: Drama Queens: In Our Own Words

8th October at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Drama Queens perform their own devised version of Muriel Sparke's novel The Abbess of Crewe, 2019

Please note, this event has now been postponed.

During Lockdown, Glasgow Women’s Library’s armchair Drama Queens have been busy re-writing fairy tales. Somehow, one of them turned into a real tale for these strange times and the Drama Queens would like to share it with you!

Drama Queens: In Our Own Words, Thursday 8th October, 7pm to 8pm, Online, Women only, 18+


Join us online for the world premiere of this timely new play Cummings and Goings. Meet Mother as she struggles to deal with her three annoying and arrogant children – Boris, Dom and Mikey. After watching the pre-recorded, socially-distanced film, chat to the writers and cast about the cathartic fun of getting their frustrations down on paper.

We laughed ourselves silly – which definitely helped during lockdown” – Drama Queens participant

This is one of our “attend” events this Autumn – sit back and watch the play unfold, with the chance to ask questions at the end.
