A One Way Street

The preoccupations of suburban housewives are presented in four, well-observed sketches. Sarah and Lois, trapped in a larder during a kids’ party, argue the merits of ‘genuinely sustainable’ party bags. Paula and Cathy, rehearsing their pitch for a position on the neighbourhood council, descend into petty one-upmanship. Understated and irresistibly funny.
