Unravelling the Ribbon

By Mary Kelly and Maureen White

Paperback £8.99£7.19

The touching - and frequently hilarious - story of three women whose lives are touched by breast cancer.

Rose is thirty-four and lives on a farm with her husband and two children. She worries she may have married too young. Lola is fifty and wants to sell her home. Nobody ever calls and she has stopped opening her post. Lyndsey is eleven and her best friend has stopped sitting beside her in art class.

When breast cancer touches their lives, everything starts to unravel - Rose's marriage falls apart, Lola gets arrested and Lyndsey hides a cooked ham in a thorn bush.

Mary Kelly and Maureen White's play Unravelling the Ribbon was first staged at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, in 2007.
