Horncastle Theatre Company is preparing to present a contemporary play by former actress Morna Regan.

‘Midden’ is a sharp, funny, moving story of five women across three generations, and a prodigal daughter’s return.

Ruth, a 30-something business woman, returns home to Northern Ireland from America, where she has built a successful fashion business.

However, instead of the expected welcome, she finds her mother full of bitterness and anger, her grandmother on the brink of Alzheimer’s and her younger sister struggling to survive.

Her arrival provokes instant strife, opening old scars and revealing incendiary secrets.

Directed by Sue le Page, ‘Midden’ runs from September 19 to September 22.

Tickets are available from the Horncastle Music Shop in the Bull Ring or through the Horncastle Theatre Company website
