A new Australian work by award-winning writer Suzanne Hawley


A comedy, a tragedy. A tale of sea eagles, pole dancing, love, children and childhood dreams, of religion, reefers and rock & roll, and friendships which have stood the test of time.


Until now.

Jackie, Elizabeth, Frances and Susan meet at school in the country. They become firm friends, calling themselves the Musketeers. We meet them at thirteen, twenty and past sixty. 


They make it a rule to meet once a year for the Musketeer's dinner.
 But this year will be different. Jackie , the most radical member of the group, is in the midst of a crisis.

Shaken , the women take Jackie back to her country home for a weekend. This will allow them to spend some fun time together, which they haven't done in years. What could possibly go wrong?

The growing dilemma will test their friendship, their morals and their courage as never before.

And a final twist in the tale will change their lives forever.

A challenging and provocative story for our times.

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

Sydney Arts Guide


“ ..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 by hotter-burning issues of climate, gender and race.If the subject is close to you in any way, it’s rewarding theatre."

Audrey Journal


"Di Smith brings nuance to the role of Jackie, along with considerable dignity to this important tale of personal agency, for women of a certain age. Helen O’Connor is memorable as the carefree Elizabeth, bringing a sense of cheeky ebullience to the show. The passionate Frances is played by Katrina Foster, whose approach proves to be unmistakably kooky, and Di Adams’ restraint only makes Susan’s sexual escapades more scandalous."
