What is The Still Room about?
It’s the day of the royal wedding, set in 1981, on the day when Charles and Diana are getting married and everyone has the day of work! Well almost everyone. In Manchester, the waiting staff are preparing for the competition that just might save the small and tired hotel they work for; “Miss North-West”. Having recently left school, Janice is waiting for her O Levels and has begun work as a banqueting waitress. The pressure for Janice is on as she works with the niggling thought that if she doesn’t earn at least four O Levels, her father will kick her out. Despite how desperate she is to leave home and the town altogether; she doesn’t see how that is going to be feasible - that’s when a new waitress arrives. She is unlike the other waiting staff and challenges Janice’s perceptions of the world with her sexual confidence and bold ideas.
