radio play

WIXIT!‘ by Trisha Wood, performed by members of Little Gaddesden Drama Club

WIXIT! is the sixth play in the Extraordinary Women series of short radio plays written by Trisha Wood. In it the ladies of Great Titley Women’s Institute (WI) bow to pressure from one of their members and decide to hold a referendum on whether to leave the National organisation. To the committee’s surprise there is a yes vote (52-48%) which leaves them with some uncomfortable choices.

Listen now!

For those of you who are not familiar with the earlier plays, you can find them here and for a little more information on the formidable characters that make up the committee of this local WI click here.
