Product Information

6m, 5f.

  • A boozy comedy of wedding-eve nerves, set in the Gents and Ladies loos of a tacky Liverpool club where Dave and Linda, unbeknownst to each other, are holding their respective stag and hen parties.
  • This sharply observed play turns into a bleakly funny and perceptive study of working-class misogyny.
  • Dave, legless on a mix of drinks, spends his evening with his head in the pan while his mates demonstrate a combination of fear, lust and bravado.
  • Linda's chums, alternately sentimental and skeptical about marriage, turn nasty when the bride starts dancing with an ex-lover, Peter.
  • Marriage may be a sacrifice, but the rituals have to be observed.
  • Whether Peter's worldly wisdom persuades Linda to flee an unsuitable marriage or merely makes her more prepared for the drudgery to come, is left unsaid at the close of this exuberantly cynical play.
