The Edinburgh Fringe award-winning play.  Three generations of women, one extraordinary year.  Sex, birth, death, dildos and salsa classes.  A year of courage, comedy and romance in the award-winning hit of the 2008 Dublin Fringe Festival.  Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the Sambucas aren’t getting rid of it.  Lorraine attacks a customer at work and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist.  Kay’s got an itch that Gem can’t scratch (but maybe Kermit can).  Paul is just using Amber until he can get to Australia.  The Hairy man fancies Lorraine but fails to rise to the occasion.  And Gem doesn’t like the neighbours coming in to ‘mind’ him.  And if all that wasn’t bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and … well … life is never the same again.

‘Vivid, funny and touching … this is lovely, life-affirming work. Four stars.’  The Telegraph
