Deckchairs Summary

Deckchairs: v. 4 by Jean McConnell

This is Jean McConnell's fourth volume of Deckchairs plays, each with a cast of two women and requiring only a simple setting. Two are comedies, two dramas, and all display Jean McConnell's keen-eyed view of human nature and of the foibles and fancies of women in particular."Garden Pests", a comedy, focusses on two keen gardeners meeting in a magnificent garden from which neither intends to go home empty-handed."Grannies", a drama, introduces us to Jenny, reluctantly looking after her teenage daughter's baby, and to Barbara, whose deep grandmotherly feelings have led her into a very strange situation."Outdoor Pleasures", a comedy, finds long-suffering Deirdre waiting for an outdoor production of Much Ado About Nothing to start, accompanied by her awkward and far-from-enthusiastic Aunt Tottie."Remember Me", a drama, takes place in a corner of a garden at a wedding reception. Elizabeth and Sarah, who shared a flat many years before, meet for the first time since then, and Sarah seizes her chance to let Elizabeth know what she feels about her actions in the past.
