  • Edinburgh Fringe First Award - 2001

A sharp, funny, moving story of five women across three generations, and a prodigal daughter's return.

Ruth, a thirty-something businesswoman, returns home to Northern Ireland from America where she has built a successful fashion business. But instead of the expected welcome, she finds her mother full of bitterness and anger; her grandmother on the brink of Alzheimers and her younger sister struggling to survive. Her arrival provokes instant strife, opening old scars and revealing incendiary secrets.

Morna Regan's play Midden was first staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2001, winning an Edinburgh Fringe First Award.
