Five women inherit equal shares in a dilapidated pleasure pier and are forced to settle their differences in order to get the pier operational again.
There is Pam, the embittered mother; Theresa, the confused daughter; Betty, the eccentric grandmother; Jackie; the health addict and Sharon; the loud-mouthed punk.
This farcical comedy takes its humour from the culture clashes between the women, two if whom are sworn enemies!
The comedy moves through the rigors or aerobics classes and exploding candyfloss machines until it culminates in an end-of-pier fund-raising concert where the celebrity guest cancels at the last minute, resulting in hysterical chaos and a botched attempt at impersonation by one of the women.
This is a character-driven comedy, with moments of high farce, that also manages to be gentle and touching, revealing a telling message about the need to preserve our seaside landmarks.
