“Thursday we play cards. Best day of the week. Sunday, I dream of Thursday”.
Italy, 1960s. Claudia, Gabriella, Sofia, and Beatrice meet every week to play cards, discuss their marriages, and shuffle the deck of life. Fast forward thirty years, their daughters gather after a funeral, and the cycle repeats. But has anything changed?
Written by Oscar-nominee Cristina Comencini, a searing new translation from Aida Rocci brings the flavour, passion, and authenticity of a story that has captivated Italy for decades to the UK for the first time.
