When the West End Synagogue in London's Soho is threateneed with closure, three elderly Jewish ladies are at risk of losing something they have enjoyed and cherished for over forty years - their Tuesday afternoon card game. When they fear that not only will their shul be closed but that the building will be bought by a young strip club tycoon, they are determuned to oppose and thwart the closure with any means open to them. Each of these ladies has her own personal cross to bear and when they are joined by a middle aged friend struggling to emerge from a trgic, cloistered past, they make an unlikely protest group. Perhaps the object of their protest becomes less important than the will and resolve to make their voices and opinions heard.
The play is a funny, intimate look into the lives of four Jewish women. It is based on a real event - the closure in 1994 of the Synagogue in London's Dean Street.
