About the Show
A black comedy about one woman's pursuit to change her circumstances for the better.
It is 1981, the year of the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
A small hotel stages the 'Miss North West' competition this year in a desperate attempt to improve its dire financial situation. Meanwhile, Janice, the hotel's waitress, waits in the still room as she sits and craves more from life. When a new waitress arrives, this shakes things up at the dreary hotel for good.
A new dark comedy by playwright Sally Rogers. Nigel Douglas directs. This production is recommended for ages 16+.
[It] turns from easy to queasy viewing. Because these characters are so flat, the script so crude and the acting – perhaps as a result – so awkward. It works neither as comedy or drama ... It is, to misquote a 1980s legend, not in the best possible taste.
