A revenge musical about homicidal menopausal women and fiscal responsibility, inspired by the personal testimonies of activist pensioners – a selected play for Bristol Old Vic’s 2019 Open Session from Documental Theatre.
It’s 2016. Lady Green is bronzing on a Super Yacht, Sir Phil Green is getting roasted by a Parliamentary Select Committee, and Sandra in Lighting, who’s worked thirty-five years for BHS, is burning from the loss of her pension.
Croydon branch is closing but there ain’t no closure for Sandra, not even in the stoic lyrics of her favourite Country songs. That’s until a chance encounter in the ladies’ fitting rooms with Patsy, a member of the National Rifle Association. It seems Sandra has much to learn about getting your dues from the Round Rock chapter of the Well-Armed Woman…
With a Country & Western score that’s catchier than Ebola, brought to you by the company that made Score, Pulling Out and Laminated, Hot Flushes is the only show you’ll see this year that puts hutzpah and foot spa in the same lyric.
