Written by Malachi Kelly, Six Angry Women is a departure from the Group’s earlier Zoom offerings and addresses the thorny issues of covid misinformation, race, religious differences and immigration in the context of battling the pandemic on this small island.
With a nod to the famous, 12 Angry Men, the Six Angry Women of the title confront their own prejudices as they, the jury, try and decide the fate of a young illegal immigrant girl being prosecuted for breaking covid regulations. In so doing they inadvertently reveal their own shortcomings and perhaps realise that maybe it is not just the accused who is on trial.
Yet again Margery Quinn has taken on the considerable challenge of producer and has dedicated hours of her solitary time working with this talented cast, a mixture of “old Zoom hands” (Bridie Heaney, Wilma Campbell, Marie Claire Guy, Hilary Good) and “newbies” (Una Hendron, Claudia Clendinning and Gillian Faulkner) to produce a thought provoking and humorous piece of theatre.
