Composers and their stage works 


Mary Gallagher


Two secret gorgers meet in an hotel room while attending a women's conference. One is a simple, country mouse, married to a mechanic; the other a brassy city dweller whose husband is a wealthy businessman.

Inevitably their conversation gets round to their favourite topic - f9ood - but the funnier their exchanges becvome the more we are made poignantly aware of the deprivation and disappointment whichhave led them to compensate with compulsive over-eating.
