Raise a glass to female family bonding and buried resentment!
3 Women is a brand-new comedy drama by Katy Brand.
From generation to generation, from Mother to Daughter, this female-led play explores what it means to be a woman in the 21st century and the consequences of the generational gap on our attitudes, cultural expectations and family dynamic. From wedding celebrations to relationship disillusionment, 3 Women is razor-sharp funny and caustically irresistible.
Starring Anita Dobson as Eleanor, Debbie Chazen as Suzanne and Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Laurie, this hilariously frank and original debut, brings our three women and their own very different identities and opinions into one hotel suite for a single night of redemption. What will be revealed?
Anita Dobson is an Olivier Award Nominated and well-loved television, theatre and film actress.

Other TV highlights include the ITV sitcom Split Ends (1989) and the well-loved BBC show Call the Midwife (2017). Ever versatile, Dobson also had a successful career as a singer with the hit song ‘Anyone Can Fall in Love’, a skill she then transferred to the West-End, starring as Mama Morton in Chicago (2003).
