What would you say to Katherine Mansfield if you found her in your bed? When life gets too hard for best friends Ally and Petra they decide to go to bed, John and Yoko style – except not for ‘Peace’ – forever. They never expect they will be joined by five trailblazing New Zealand women from across time who are confined to bed as they battle tuberculosis, typhoid, ‘nervous exhaustion’ or just try to get some sleep.

Shortlisted for the Adam NZ Play Award and led by acclaimed director Rachel Lenart (Constellations), Modern Girls in Bed is a razor-sharp, poignant collision of historical heroines and present-day politics. As Ally and Petra’s bed gets more crowded and real life becomes too hard to avoid, will the women of their world come together or fall apart?


Presented by arrangement with Playmarket
