How one man can fulfill three women…
Verdict: real star quality

The fertile imaginations of three different generations of adoring women at a Sligo school are played out by Joanne Mitchell, who also penned this playfully confrontational parody of female romantic enslavement.

Mitchell does all three with magnificent gusto, takng each to the peak of their obsession and achieving moments of real poignancy and mania.

As far as this 50-minute dramatic composition goes: full marks for Ms Mitchell’s attitde, confidence, verve and wit. I can’t wait to see her next piece of homework.
