Another monodrama, written, in 1980, features the recently widowed Jocasta Vaudeville-Smith. This play assumes two broad forms for the central character: public grief: formal sorrow and loss, suffering, weeping, yet numbness…then private grief: informal and chaotic, displaying anger, resentment, relief, abuse, triumph, abandon, as part of an inner journey away from widowhood towards renewal. These is a dramatic tension between these states, at times ironic, absurd and rawly comic. A virtuoso role for an actress.
