NICCI WILKS AND SUSIE DEE HAVE CREATED A PAIR OF TRAGICOMIC CLOWNS TO RIVAL THE GREATEST
THE PLAY IS A UNIQUE TWO-HANDER, WHICH PUTS THE LIVES OF MARGINALISED WOMEN AT THE CENTRE OF DRAMATIC ACTION
For years a mother and her daughter have lived together in a dilapidated caravan full of faded dreams. They have nowhere else to go. While Judy, big, bloated and perennially unwell, holds court from the caravan’s double bed, Donna cooks liver, drinks cask wine and dreams of a Tinder date to take her away.
But each knows the other won’t leave: they’re stuck, and will be till the end.
Over the course of one evening, while Donna’s phone pings and Judy sucks oxygen from her mask, they bicker and make up, scream and threaten violence and dream of better things.
Caravan is bitter and hilarious, tender and toxic: a darkly comic look at life on the margins and the universal need for love.
