Hormonal Housewives

Saturday 29th June 7.30pm

HH High res

Join the Hormonal Housewives as they blast their witty way through a catalogue of women’s bits: weight gain, weight loss, mood swings, moody teenagers, men, zumba, therapy, housework, homework, electrolysis, men, sex, working out, staying in, going out, bikini waxes, celebrity gossip, eating, not eating, chocolate, wine, more chocolate, social media, more wine, and all the other joys of being a 21st century woman!

No subject is taboo for these girls and no thought is too private as the challenges of modern womanhood are sliced, diced and put to rights. And that’s not all – audiences will be treated to some of the very best bits from the previous tour of this smash-hit show.

A seriously funny evening – what these women can’t teach you about modern womanhood isn’t worth knowing…

“’Hormonal Housewives’ hits the proverbial spot for the hordes of females who are hell bent on having a laugh at both their own expense and that of the male species.” (The Stage) “Candid…camp…provocative…I laughed my head off.” (audience member)

“Upfront, extremely personal, hilarious – I loved it!” (audience member)
