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

Little Gem won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, 2009, the BBC Northern Ireland Drama Award in Association with the Stewart Parker Trust and the Fishamble Award for Best New Irish Writing.

Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the sambucas aren't getting rid of it. Lorraine attacks a customer and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist. Kay's got an itch 'down there' that Gem can't scratch. And if all that wasn't bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and – well – life is never the same again.
