Angela’s husband has had a mid-life crisis and a mid-European fling; Angela is left with the dog.
Initially exultant, Angela soon finds herself emotionally bereft and with her self-confidence at an all-time low. Rejecting or accepting the well-meaning advice and consolation of friends, interfering mother, critical daughter and silently-accusing dog, Angela slowly, and at times painfully, rebuilds her life.
An insightful and hilarious exploration of what life can be like for a 40-something, suddenly single woman, My Brilliant Divorce is wittily observant, achingly funny and heart-wrenchingly real.
“Very best wishes to cast and crew of My Brilliant Divorce. Hope you have a great success with it. Go girls, go!” Geraldine Aron (playwright).
“There are some great jokes…but there are also sudden shafts of piercing emotional truth… A peculiarly frosty heart is required to resist My Brilliant Divorce.” Daily Telegraph.
