Life Changes

by Carolyn Pertwee


A collection of short plays on the comings and goings of love.

We were rehearsing this production in March 2020 as the pandemic struck and we were one of the many theatre companies forced to postpone.

We were delighted to be able to finally go ahead and we brought this production to the OSO Arts Centre in October 2021.

A mixture of comedy and tragedy, these plays tackle subjects  including marital fidelity and challenging family relationships.  Love in many guises…

Written by Carolyn Pertwee, Life Changes is the companion piece to her quartet of plays Sexologically Speaking which were presented at OSO in 2007 to rave notices and sell-out houses.
