Pauline used to be Paul and as far as her father is concerned she still is. Despite her father’s inability to accept her as a woman, Pauline visits him every Tuesday to help him out with his laundry and his shopping. Join her on her weekly visits come hell or high water, flouting the barbed comments, the battles and the stares, wanting quite simply to be his daughter. All quite ordinary, all quite normal…
Sometimes comic and sometimes tragic, Tuesdays At Tescos is an intense, thought-provoking journey, exploring human perceptions of identity and acceptance that stays with you.
Originally written by French playwright Emmanuel Darley and translated into English by Matthew Hurt and Sarah Vermande, this one hour monologue is sensitively performed by Scott Kentell and directed by Sue Womersley, creators of newly formed Tangled Web.

– The Good Review
“Brilliantly by Scott Kentell… Kentell manages to draw in the audience with her persuasive presence on stage in a red skirt, blouse and high-heels, and the simple props of a chair and a white screen behind her.”
“Scott Kentell brought a gentle sincerity to a very good script… His performance was assured and insightful. Re:Play is not only a great chance to see quality new work so cheaply, but it will also whet your appetite for the big HOME-coming too.”
“Scott Kentell’s performance as Pauline is moving and versatile… The writing is beautiful – humorous, dark and uplifting… The acting and the writing work together very successfully to make this inescapably poignant storytelling.”
