Monday’s Child

Brendan Murray, playwright


25 pgs. 2 female

Originally produced by Tutti Frutti, UK, in 2014

Run Time: 45 minutes

Audience Recommendation: All Ages


Monday’s Child tells a simple poetic story of the unique bond between a grandmother and a little girl.  We share the delights and surprises of the respective stages of their lives: discoveries, memories, imaginings… Together they love to sing and dress up and are often oblivious of the challenges that the real world throws at them. This imaginative, dream-like, funny story explores how we build memories together.


“Brimming with both a youthful buoyancy and implicit tender nostalgia, Monday’s Child proves to be a sentimental experience for all ages.” –York Vision


“Monday’s Child is an emotional experience.” –The Stage


“Murray’s way with words and logic is winning…” –British Theatre Guide
