M1 (non-speaking; optional) F3. Three acting areas The ageing bag lady on the streets who opens the play is the eponymous Primrose Way, once a professional actress. As she reminisces and her story unfolds, we see her enthusiastic youthful self retracing her career in the theatre, and reliving the memories of her ambitious mother, herself a professional actress, who delights in playing a number of other characters who drift through Primrose's recollections. This poignant drama is an ideal festival play for three women of varying ages. The brief scene with Primrose's father can be played with an empty armchair if preferred.
