A memoir of a creative woman’s travels in Greece and into her family’s history. Peppy Barlow is a playwright and screen writer who lives her life looking for meaning and material in all her experiences. In this book she and her friend Persephone/Lucia explore childhood memories – both good and bad – and travel with their children to Crete where ancient myths emerge to haunt them.
A very personal account of a friendship which takes Peppy back to England and ends with Persephone returning to the Underworld. Authentic, brave, honest, funny and touching – the author’s voice shines out from these pages.
Peppy is a founder member of the Woven Theatre Company which toured their production of Gainsborough and the Modern Woman in 2022 and created a remarkable site specific production Philip Thicknesse: friend or foe at Landguard Fort in 2017. Both plays were co-written with Sally Wilden, another local playwright. Other plays include The Sutton Hoo Mob for Eastern Angles and Shadows in the Doorway BBC Radio 4.
