Set over the hectic, unforgiving season of Christmas and New Year, 'Falling Knives and Runaround Wives' unfolds with four very different women caught in the eye of a storm. Tricia is about to leave her beloved job as her fifteen year old daughter is pregnant; Gillian, Tricia's cousin, has left her hubby for her lesbian lover (much to her mother's horror); debt ridden Michelle is being cheated on, again, by her wayward husband, and Susan tries to hold her life together despite being regularly beaten by her violent partner. Their common goal is the determination to put on a rip-roaring New Years' show as an ABBA Tribute band! The play was co-created by Catrina McHugh and Kathryn Mace and directed by Fiona Macpherson. It toured regionally in 2001 and 2006 and nationally in 2002.
