About the Book

I'm an award-winning business woman. I'm happily married with two beautiful daughters and I still fit in the same size-ten dress suit I did fifteen years ago. What could possibly threaten me?

Linda Wilde has dedicated her life to changing the world. She's won awards for her efforts, at the same time as working hard to become an inspiring mother, and an independent, loving wife.

Now, at 55, she seems to have it all. She's a woman in her prime. She's embarking on her most ambitious plan to date. Beneath the surface, though, the cracks are starting to show.

Linda by Penelope Skinner premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in November 2015.

“Funny, touching, deeply uncomfortable-making... the piece pulses with inner psychological plausibility.”

“Skinner amusingly and pointedly lampoons the beauty industry and the myths we so often spin around glamour... [the play] speaks passionately about the many ways society makes mature women invisible.”
- Evening Standard
