Set on the south coast of England, Equally Divided begins shortly after the funeral of Edith and Renata’s mother.  When the contents of the Will are made known, childhood rivalries recur in this astute and intelligent play.



EDITH TAYLOR:                Late 50’s.   Unmarried, anxious, worried about her future.  Edith has sacrificed her life to nurse her mother.


RENATA TAYLOR:            Early 50’s.  Glamorous, married several times, financially secure, Renata has spent her life doing what she pleases.


CHARLES MOWBRAY:     Mid 50’s.  A Solicitor.  Widowed.  Slightly scruffy, still handsome.


FABIAN HILL:                   Maybe in his 50’s.  Owner of an antique shop. When younger he was an actor.  He has a grand manner.
