PART OF THE 2017 WOMEN IN COMEDY FESTIVAL
In a town, somewhere in the North… Donna and Tracey work at the local supermarket. Donna hates customers, but Tracey loves ‘em – especially round the back of the totes. And she's got the footage to prove it!
Kay and Val are star-crossed lovers. Val loves her pooches but Kay’s got a dog phobia, an allergy to cheese and a ranty, armchair-bound mother, Maureen – who hates Martina Navratilova.
Receptionists Pepsi and Lulu work at the town hall. They’re ‘frenemies’ with painted nails and high pitched voices. They’ve both got fiancés called Gary and lick grapes for pudding so they can slim down into their wedding dresses.
When Donna loses her job, Maureen gets evicted and Pepsi’s downgraded to the waste management hotline they know something’s going wrong in this town. And their seemingly unconnected stories come together in a hilarious, fast paced tale of sex, death, corruption, greed, betrayal, friendship, family and Latvian cigarettes.
With just two female actors playing all these parts — and more — it’s a high-energy thrill ride with quick switches, laughter, mayhem and maybe even a tear or two, too.
So pay a visit to this strife-ridden Northern town and find out if Donna and co can save their shitty city!
