G.bod Theatre follow their critically acclaimed productions of Shallow Slumber, A View Of Concrete and Queen Bette with this 50th anniversary production, a remarkable exploration of the previously hidden side of Swinging Lesbian London.
“They are going to murder me.”
”Sister George” is a beloved character on a popular BBC soap opera, a cheerful nurse who bicycles about the countryside singing hymns and doing good. In private life, June Buckridge the actress, is a swaggering, foul-mouthed, alcoholic in a long-term relationship with Alice “Childie” McNaught.
A dip in listener ratings sees the possible end for Sister George. In their tiny London flat, “George” and Alice attempt to pick up the pieces of George’s broken world – unaware that other outside factors are about to blow both their personal lives apart.
This groundbreaking play is a biting satire on the public and private lives of a “cultural icon.” it’s depiction of the underground London lesbian scene of the 1960s, at a time when openly lesbian characters were not portrayed onstage, has earned itself cult status.
