THE DESPONDENT DIVORCÉE

★★★★★ Fringe Biscuit ★★★★ The Stage ★★★★ Edinburgh Spotlight ★★★★ Fringe Guru

Shortlisted for the 2014 DramaUK Scottish Daily Mail Award

A 1940's New York Hotel spirals through a storm of media speculation following the 8th storey suicide leap of a desperate young woman. The Despondent Divorcée is inspired by the lyrical poetry of Sara Teasdale, and the infamous 1942 photograph of the same name by I. Russell Sorgi.

 

I'll be totally honest with you, both me and Nathan (on reflection) really don't like the name of the play, but the rest of it was good, we promise.
