I think Two Women would make an excellent film if it was done right. But who would you have playing the lead characters?I always imagine Pauline Quirke as Susan though possibly she is a bit old now to play a younger Susan! Matty...no idea! I heard that The Runaway was being made into a tv drama but never heard of it since.

hi folks. have seen the film the jump and i cant remeber the one, might have ben dangerous lady. both dreadful. no justice done there. i think it would be for an up and comng fresh playwright to do an adaptaion play based on maybe 2 women to start with. you have much more artistic licence in theatre. with martinas choice of subject matter it would be explored better in a play at than any dodgy film. pxx

Hi girls, a melon scratcher is a bit of a puzzle, something that's bizarre or confusing. As in a head scratcher!! If you can't work it out it's a melon scratcher.
And an ice cream is someone who is a complete melt, soft and a bit of a prat.

I not reading Martina at the mo! If anyone reading them comes across the term 'melon scratcher' please post here what book and page so I can reference. Normally I can go to a book and pick it out but I dont remember reading that before which is not like me!
