KHT50: Grandmother’s Steps by Bryony Lavery

KHT50: Grandmother’s Steps by Bryony Lavery

Bryony Lavery’s surreal musical comedy sees two housemates determined to win one over on the other, in a battle of quick fire jokes, puns and musical numbers. 

Bryony Lavery’s second play, Grandmother’s Steps (1977), was originally a lunchtime production at the King's Head Theatre. Les oeufs malades, the company that Bryony co-founded alongside Gerard Bell and Jessica Higgs in 1976, was created to create roles for women. Bryony is also part of an extensive lineup of LGBT theatre makers that the King’s Head Theatre has supported in their early career.

Please join us for a post show extravaganza with writer Bryony Lavery and original cast members Sue Elliot and Pippa Sparkes. As they discuss lunchtime theatre, working at the King's Head Theatre and other fun tidbits.
