The Girls of Slender Means
By: Muriel Spark
Adapted by: Judith Adam
Directed by: Muriel Romanes
Co-produced by: Stellar Quines & Assembly Theatre
Poised on the edge of a defining moment in 1945, a community of young women in bomb-damaged London is living in extraordinary and momentous times.
They swap chocolates for ice cream, count calories, quarrel and reconcile and work on their poise. About sex and the availability of it, money and the lack of it, The Girls of Slender Means is as chilling as an Arctic winter, slashing the face of romantic relationships like flying glass.
The Girls of Slender Means was a co-produciton with Assembly Theatre, Edinburgh and played there during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2009.
