Stags And Hens
Author(s): Willy Russell
'Stags and Hens takes place in the Gents and Ladies loos of a tacky Liverpool club, where Dave and Linda have decided, unbeknownst to each other, to hold their stag and hen parties . . . a bleakly funny and perceptive study of working-class misogyny, puritanism and waste' Guardian
'Combines comedy with acrid truth in the style Willy Russell has made unmistakably his own ... and hits off brilliantly the herd instinct driving both sexes onward and bedward' Daily Telegraph
'Firmly in the centre of the playwright's best achievements: lively, coarse, well-organised, truthful and very funny' Financial Times
Stags and Hens premiered at the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool, in October 1978. This edition was updated to coincide with the Liverpool Royal Court's production in February 2008, and includes a new introduction by the author.
