Angela’s husband has had a mid-life crisis and a mid-European fling; Angela is left with the dog.
Initially exultant, Angela soon finds herself emotionally bereft and with her self-confidence at an all-time low. Rejecting or accepting the well-meaning advice and consolation of friends, interfering mother, critical daughter and silently-accusing dog, Angela slowly, and at times painfully, rebuilds her life.
An insightful and hilarious exploration of what life can be like for a 40-something, suddenly single woman, My Brilliant Divorce is wittily observant, achingly funny and heart-wrenchingly real.
Geraldine Aron’s play is brought to The Mission Theatre by the talented Kay Francksen, who has performed to sell-out audiences in Bath and Bristol with her one-woman show 'Shirley Valentine'.
Kay first played Angela in My Brilliant Divorce in 2006.
“Very best wishes to cast and crew of My Brilliant Divorce. Hope you have a great success with it. Go girls, go!” Geraldine Aron (playwright).
“There are some great jokes…but there are also sudden shafts of piercing emotional truth… A peculiarly frosty heart is required to resist My Brilliant Divorce.” Daily Telegraph.
This play is produced as part of the Bath Comedy Festival. It contains scenes and language of an adult nature.
This amateur production of My Brilliant Divorce is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
This show was performed at The Mission Theatre, Bath in April 2017.
