Anna's Room

Overview

To escape from the restraints of a suffocating relationship, Anna moves into a flat with a friend, Prue.  In the old attic room which she adopts as her study, Anna is presented with a ghostly series of women through the ages - women who, like Anna, have not conformed to the usual roles of wife and mother - a Victorian spinster, a nun, a nurse who worked with Florence Nightinglae during the Crimean War and a young wife who dies childless.  Through these and the visits of the less transient figures of Simon, her doggedly devoted boyfriend, Dan, her flat-mate's self-seeking and manipulative brother and Harriet, Prue's mother, Anna contemplates her life and what she wants from it.   "Ellen Dryden shows again her skill in creating crisp, often witty dialogue which neatly delineates her characters" - The Stage.
