Madge agus Martha

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Siobhán Ní Shúilleabháin 

  • Setting

    Seomra suite i dteach Mhadge, maidin ar bith sa bhliain 3000 AD.

  • Synopsis

    Madge and Martha are two very liberated young women. Martha feels that Madge has nothing to worry about-the robot, the test-tube baby and the nurse all seem to be in order. She accuses her friend of reading banned books, ones in which there is no account of the evil of men. Madge is a lost cause, however, and unbelievably, she's actually fallen in love with a man!
