3 Women is a funny and frank play by comedian and writer Katy Brand. The story places three generations of women from the same family in a hotel suite on the evening before a wedding. As the evening progresses and the champagne flows, their resentments, old and new surface, alongside their family bonds and affections. The play considers their experiences as women of different generations in a funny and engaging way as the wedding approaches. This female led play explores what it means to be a woman in the 21st century and the consequences of the generational gap on our attitudes, cultural expectations and family dynamics. From wedding celebrations to relationship disillusionment, '3 Women' is razor sharp funny, and caustically irresistible.
