Does Amy Granville have a ‘fancy man’?

Set in a small Pennine village in the 1920’s, Amy and Arthur have been married just under a year, but the small community begins to talk in whispers when Amy starts visiting the public baths twice a week and taking long walks alone. Arthur is more interested in cricket, football, and his pigeons. In an attempt to inspire more romance in their relationship, Amy does nothing to dispel the rumours of her ‘fancy man’.

“At once funny and immensely moving. Particularly impressive is the way the play moves between knockabout comedy and bittersweet tragedy.'' Time Out
