Are You There Garth? It's Me Margaret


  • Playwright

    Fiona Looney 

  • Synopsis

    Margaret's life is in a rut, stuck in an endless cycle of ironing, cooking and carrying her husband and children through the world. She takes solace in chatting daily from her kitchen to country mega star Garth Books as she irons her latest mountain of crumpled clothing. Garth, it turns out is a good listener, which is just as well as Margaret doesn't really want another voice in the room while she tells him her woes.
