Dirty Laundry - Play by Deborah McAndrew
Written by Deborah McAndrew
Who is Emeline?
In a small terraced house in the heart of the Potteries a man lays dying. His daughter, Nora, does her best to keep him clean and comfortable, but Stoke-on-Trent in the 1950's is not a clean or comfortable place - and Reuben Moth is not at peace. In his final fever he calls out the name Emeline time and again. Nora wonders who this mystery woman could be; and why Reuben is suddenly receiving important visitors.
What secret have they been keeping for almost 20 years? And why must it never come to light?
