Synopsis

Five women inherit a run-down theatre and decide to put on a fundraising concert to revive its failing fortunes. But because they are the wife, ex-wife, mother, daughter and secretary of the same man, teamwork is the last thing on their minds. Can they endure each other’s company long enough to agree anything?

Against the odds it seems their plan is about to succeed. But then disaster strikes, and they find themselves in a frantic scramble to conceal the truth from their expectant audience.

Topzine called this ‘a mad play, full of dynamism, momentum, funny dialogue and great surprises… you can be assured of great entertainment.’ Ray Cooney described it as ‘an excellent piece of writing – very charming and very funny.’

And ActUK asked, ‘How many comedies are there that make one’s side ache from laughing and bring a tear to one’s eye?’

This hilarious, fast-paced comedy is the perfect opener to our season.
