A Nursery Tale
4 Extra Debut. Kate Clanchy's tough and touching play exposes the truth about two women on either side of a cultural divide, with a razor sharp wit.
by Kate Clanchy
Xhensila has lost a child. Leona has lost a child. The two women are very similar. They could not be more different. As Kate Clanchy's nailbiting and bitterly funny play uncovers the where, the how and the why of their missing children, we discover exactly why parenthood is not a fairytale.
Producer/Director: Jonquil Panting
The music accompanying the programme is sung by Sister Mildred Barker, from the collection 'Early Shaker Spirituals', published by Rounder Records.
