Singular Female Voices

Three remarkable short plays for one (female) actor.

Jordan by Anna Reynolds with Moira Buffini
The true story of Shirley Jones, who kills her baby boy, Jordan, rather than have him taken away by his abusive father.

Jordan is the powerful and moving true story of a young woman’s journey from the soggy chip papers of Morecambe to her trial for the murder of her baby boy, having saved him from his abusive father.

Jordan is a short play for a solo performer, first staged at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells, in 1992. It won the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Fringe Play.
