Woman in a Dressing Gown

Woman in a Dressing Gown by Ted Willis

Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th April 1971

St Augustine’s Hall, Trowbridge

The Prestons are an apparently happy household made up of wife Amy, husband Jim and teenage son Brian, living in a cramped flat on a London housing estate. However, tensions soon become clear. Though she has a breezy, loving character, Amy is a disorganised housewife, and finds it difficult to concentrate enough to tidy or cook properly. Jim is having an affair with a colleague, Georgie,  who threatens to break it off unless Jim divorces his wife and leaves his family. He promises that he will do so, and eventually demands a divorce. Amy is shocked and distraught, while Brian becomes angry with his father.
