At times hilarious, at times heartbreaking, this bitter-sweet one-woman play of love and loss.
Ruth, child of the sixties, is astonished to find herself a grandmother, about to get an old age pension. For she still fancies taking great big bites out of the tomato of life (tomatoes as everyone knows being an aphrodisiac).
Sexy, sassy and sharp, when she is confronted by mortality following the death of an old friend, she starts musing on her life, in particular, her memories of swinging around London, where, like so many Irish girls of her age, she went to study nursing.
At times hilarious, at times heartbreaking, this bitter-sweet one-woman play of love and loss, punctuated by the music of Bob Dylan, features a scintillating performance as Ruth by actor Nuala Hayes (Big Maggie, Dear Frankie). It is written by novelist and playwright Susan Knight. Direction is by Laura Dowdall.
