Four women — all widows — sit in the communal silence of a Quaker Meeting; we hear their thoughts and join with their joys and troubles. Victoria, the most recently widowed, is resigned to never getting answers to her questions. Wendy has kept her home life secret for years. Tilly’s husband was far from good to her. Elderly Gladys cherishes the memories of her alcoholic beau. Faith, grief, marriage, love and “Quakerly behaviour” are among the themes discussed in this tender and sometimes humorous short drama.
