what's happening? > 'WALKIES' BY JANE LOCKYER WILLIS

'A heart-warming comedy on the theme of loneliness about two people from different backgrounds who meet by chance in the woods".

'A smashing play that opens with gentle comedy,
touches on loneliness, mentions pet love and concludes
with an unexpected friendship.'

The Woman Writer


Conventional, middle aged Jen goes for her daily walk in the nearby woods and meets Steve, a straight-talking vagrant. He invites her back to his home, a large cardboard box set among a clump of fir trees shortly to be felled. Hesitant, but desperately wanting to widen her horizon, Jen accepts; and so develops a bond between two people whose backgrounds are widely different.

But there are questions: why does Steve insist that Jen owns a dog when she insists that she doesn't? Are things really as they seem? Or has Steve an agenda that Jen knows nothing about ... until, that is, she looks deep into the corner of the box.

'A play with a bite!'
