Peggy was one of the most influential behind-the-scenes figures in post-war British theatre. Focusing on one fateful day of her life, when old clients are exiting and new ones are entering, Platers play is a meditation on the creative spirit. The play premièred at the Hampstead Theatre, London, 23 November 1999.
