About this product
- DescriptionFour determinedly 'liberated' - and very different - women ricochet around a tiny shared flat, while trying to pull together the shattered strands of their lives: Dusa is struggling to regain her children from their father, Fish is losing her lover to ather woman, Stas is on the game to fi nance the course she wants to study at university, while Vi steadfastly refuses to eat - A bitingly sardonic modern classic, widely regarded as an historic icon of early feminism, Dusa, Fish, Stas and Vi was fi rst seen at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1976 under the title Dead Fish. Michael Codron transferred the play to the West End under its new title where it enjoyed a huge success and established Pam Gems as a major new voice in British theatre.
