Love, sex, birth, death and salsa classes. Three generations of women. One extraordinary year.


Amber – just out of school, enjoys life, double sambucas and boyfriend Paul. Then the “indigestion” starts.


Lorraine – attacks a customer at work and now sees a ‘head doctor’. She’s told to do one nice thing for herself each week – so salsa classes it is!


Kay – finds life frustrating; her husband Gem is ailing and she’s missing more than his conversation!


“LITTLE GEM” was the winner of the Fishamble New Writing Award and the Stewart Parker/BBC Drama Award at the Dublin Fringe Festival in 2008. In 2009 it won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award.
