In My Bed


  • Playwright

    Veronica Dyas 

  • Author Notes

    In collaboration with Niamh Burke-Kennedy.

  • Synopsis

    I have no bed. I'm an adult woman without a bed. I'm making a new one and I'm inviting you in. Bums to bums she says, it's not healthy to sleep with your knickers on. People need to say their things and I've smothered mine for years. I'm tired of being passive, I only want to say what's true. He never asks me, just does it. Pillow talk, not polite conversation. I'm not on any ladder, I'm in bed. I'm going to talk to you. Come on in, you're in your Granny's.
