Women Laughing

Michael Wall

PaperBack (09 May 2000)
There are many fleeting moments when either Colin or Tony want to smother the laughs of their wives. The two couples fight for every inch of their lives, from the garden of a house in Ealing to the grounds of a mental asylum.

Women Laughing has been performed at the Royal Exchange Manchester, the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, the Palace Theatre Watford and was toured in 2000 by Not The National Theatre.

'Wall’s early death...has robbed the theatre of a unique and very powerful voice.' - Rick Jones, Evening Standard

'Powerfully charts the eruption of mental illness into ordinary lives.' - Daily Telegraph

'This tight, tense play is about disintegration, about the loss of confidence you never really had.' - Jack Tinker, Daily Mail

‘Bold, brash and subtle… a hilarious and desperate script… will make you laugh and think about why you're laughing. Very much recommended.’ – British Theatre Guide

‘It is the mark of a really talented writer when a difficult subject such as mental illness can be made to be not just entertaining, but downright funny… this is a gem of a play.’ – The Public Reviews
