A tale of sea eagles and pole dancing, of children and childhood dreams, of religion and rock ‘n’ roll. Most of all this is a tale of friendships that have stood the test of time.

Until now.

Jackie, Elizabeth, Frances and Susan become besties at high school and find freedom in Swinging London a decade later. After that they carve out very different lives for themselves and don’t see each other as often, but always meet up once a year for the ‘Musketeer’s dinner’.

But this year is different.

Past sixty, older but no wiser, the most radical member of the group is in crisis. To offer their support, the ‘Musketeers’ take Jackie back to her country home for a weekend – to relax and let their hair down. What could possibly go wrong? What follows tests their friendship, their morals and their courage as never before.

And a final twist will change their lives forever.

This play has a beating heart; this play will remind you of your own pulse under your skin, steady and true but not forever, not promised.

Sydney Morning Herald

The moral dilemma at the play’s centre is one that’s been shoved from the headlines… If the subject is close to you in any way, it is rewarding theatre.

Audrey Journal

Four enchanting actors give supple characterisation to Hawley’s ultimately endearing and Empowered women.
