Synopsis


A young woman who's never had a mother and grown woman who's never had a daughter find themselves filling unexpected roles for one another.


Following a sold-out premiere at the RADA Festival 2018, Flugelman Productions proudly presents this provocative play examining love and attachment by emerging playwright Hayley Ricketson, directed by Mike Cottrell at one of London's best pub theatres - The Rosemary Branch.


When 17-year-old Grace's alcoholic father checks himself into rehab, she is sent to live with his distant cousin, 38-year-old Rhonda, who is single and who, ten years ago, had an abortion.


Will they fulfil the roles they expect to, or will they find in each other something else?


Something more complex, more troubling, perhaps even more beautiful.


The women's Inner Selve, which are represented on stage, serve as commentators, companions and constant judges.


Graceful investigates women, their desire, and their love.


In the post-Weinstein era, as the #metoo and #timesup movements take hold, it's time to create spaces in which women can reclaim their bodies and their sexuality.


Graceful opens the can of worms that is female desire in all its complexity, and lays it bare across the stage.


Longlisted for Theatre 503's Playwriting Award in 2016, this debut production will be directed by Kings Head trained Director Mike Cottrell.
