Set in the back yard of a block of flats on two Sunday mornings, An Experienced Woman Gives Advice is a sharply observed comic tale of experiences and innocence, insecurities and prejudices, all explored in Heggie’s trademark raw and clear style.

Bella has her routine: she likes to have Sunday mornings to herself in the garden and not even her boyfriend Kenny, a younger man, is allowed to disturb her. But the invasion of a series of strangers and a series of rumours about Kenny’s antics the night before turns her peace into farce, a hilarious muddle of seductions and deceptions, with something quite painful at the heart of it all.

An Experienced Woman Gives Advice premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre in 1995.
