Dulcie and Walter By Catherine Herman
fEAST Theatre presents, as part of their tenth anniversary season, a brand new play: Dulcie and Walter by Catherine Herman
"Inside these ol’ bodies, these ol’ shells, is whole worlds you can’t know about…"
The year is 1970. Dulcie and Walter have lived all 50 years of their married life on a small farm in Norfolk. They ‘chunder on’ with stories and gossip but Walter is becoming frail. Both of them are determined to spend the rest of their lives on the farm with the spring hawthorn and the autumn blackberries.
Visits from Dulcie’s great-niece Mary reveal that beneath the ‘chunderin’ and funny stories, Walter and Dulcie’s relationship has not only rubbed along but involved some moments of glory and some of heart-breaking despair. They also harbour long-buried family secrets that Mary is determined to uncover, and Dulcie is determined to keep buried.
Dulcie and Walter is a profound, life-affirming and hilarious play about the sacrifices women make, growing old and staying wild, and chewin’ the cud over a nice bowl of lamb stew.
Catherine Herman, originally from Great Yarmouth, after varied careers and travels, is having a late renaissance as a writer and actor.
