A striking play from Northern Ireland about two women and the childhood tragedy they'll never be allowed to forget. For Emma and Clare, 1980 was the summer they met at the swings, the summer they built a tree house and stole from Dennis O'Donnell's shop. The summer a young mother and her infant daughter moved into number 14... Now in their thirties, Emma and Clare struggle to come to terms with the chain of devastating events that began that summer, to understand what they did, what they became and how they were judged. Lisa McGee's play Girls and Dolls was first performed by Tinderbox Theatre Company on a tour of Northern Ireland in 2006. It won the Stewart Parker Trust Award in 2007. 'Lisa McGee adds a new twist to a well worn genre in this upsetting and powerful play about repressed memories' - Guardian 'Beautifully written and sensitively observed' - Irish Times Stewart Parker Trust Award

Emma and Clare were childhood friends. Now, they replay the events and incidents of their youth: the tree house they sheltered in, the two elderly sisters they ran errands for, the film they went back to time and time again. But, Clare becomes obsessed with a new arrival on the street - an attractive young woman with a baby, but apparently no man.
