Bombshells

By Joanna Murray-Smith

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

Six funny and perceptive monologues about the stresses of modern female life.

Meryl Davenport – A mother who tells the story of her non-stop day in a rapid-fire internal monologue.

Tiggy Entwhistle – A cactus lover bravely attempting to rise above her relationship crisis.

Mary O'Donnell – A feisty teenage schoolgirl competing in a talent quest.

Theresa McTerry – An increasingly disillusioned bride on her wedding day.

Winsome Webster – A widow with an appetite for the unexpected.

Zoe Struthers – An American cabaret singer who's had her fair share of personal problems.

Joanna Murray-Smith's play Bombshells was first performed by Caroline O'Connor at the Fairfax Theatre, Victorian Arts Centre, Melbourne, Australia, in December 2001. It was revived at the same venue in 2004, transferring to the York Theatre in Sydney in April 2004.

A reduced version consisting of four monologues was performed by Caroline O'Connor as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh, in 2004. This production – now consisting of all six monologues – transferred to the Arts Theatre in the West End in September 2004.
