This brutal and hilarious one-act play was declared one of the greatest plays of all time for women in Lucy Kerbel’s volume 100 Great Plays For Women. Set in an all-girls’ boarding school, Numbers depicts a vicious battle of wills between four Sixth Form girls in the hour before a new Head Girl is announced. As the girls vie for the coveted position, old friendships and loyalties give way to ambition and betrayal. Nothing is too extreme in a battle which increasingly proves less about the disputed role and more about how the girls’ conflicting ideologies of class, privilege and morality will affect the rest of their lives.Buy Now (US) Buy Now (UK)
