A comedy about mums, bums and social media by Sharon Tracey Wright, directed by Adam Wollerton. The Narky Knickers Theatre production nails the zeitgeist, bringing you all the belly laughs from refusing to go belly up. Whether they’re fuming at a funeral or pushing a poodle up a tree in a panic, these feisty friends fight to survive redundancy in a very funny and truly topical tale for our times.

‘…this cleverly-scripted, tenderly observed, life-affirming comedy…’ – The Good Life
