Waiting in the Wings

The Wings is a charity home for retired actresses in financially distressed circumstances, who have been stars in their day. Here these aged ladies grow older ungracefully amidst squabbles, jealousies and grandiose memories.

On a June afternoon, the once great actress Lotta Bainbridge arrives. Years ago she married the ex-husband of one of the inmates, May Davenport, and her arrival sparks off a feud involving the entire home. It is only resolved when one deranged lady sets fire to her room.

After this tragedy, Lotta and May spend what little time is left to them in peace and harmony.
