Amy’s View takes the audience on a tense and emotional journey between a strong mother and her loving daughter. Beginning in 1979, Amy Thomas finds herself caught between a mother she adores, but who also represents the past, and Dominic, the problematic love of her life and questionable symbol of the future. Esme Allen is a well-known West End actress who is navigating the moment when the West End’s theatres are failing to offer actors a regular way of life. Her introduction to Dominic during a visit sets in motion a running argument about the value of the arts which becomes inextricably bound up with marital relations, love, fidelity, and integrity. Amy’s View is a powerhouse of a play demanding two tour-de-force performances from its female leads.
