The Girls Of Slender Means at The Royal Lyceum Theatre; a story of glamour in austerity, women at work, women at play, and women’s wit - based on the novel by Muriel Spark

From the novel by Muriel Spark

The Girls Of Slender Means

  • A story of glamour in austerity, women at work, women at play, and women’s wit
  • Set in the summer of 1945, in a hostel for the ‘Pecuniary Convenience and Social Protection of Ladies of Slender Means below the age of Thirty Years, who are obliged to reside apart from their Families in order to follow an Occupation in London'
  • The girls who live there do their best to act as if the war never happened, they practice elocution and jostle one another over suitors and a fabulous Schiaparelli gown, which they each use whenever the occasion demands
  • But behind the girls' giddy literary and amorous explorations hides an exquisite fragility and sinister peril, as they strive to survive 'when all the nice people were poor'
  • Drama adapted by Gabriel Quigley, from the novel by Muriel Spark, and directed by Roxana Silbert
