HOT FLUSHES – THE MUSICAL
It’s 2016. Lady Green is bronzing on a Super Yacht, Sir Phil Green is getting roasted by a Parliamentary Select Committee, and Sandra in Lighting, who’s worked forty-five years for BHS, is burning from the loss of her pension.
Hot Flushes – The Musical is inspired by the testimony of pension-age feminist activists. It’s the story of Sandra, a disappointed BHS pensioner on the edge of sanity and on a mission to get her dues. Sorta what you might get if Victoria Wood and Ennio Morricone collaborated after a few tequilas, and a Bristol Old Vic Open Session Play, the show features an ensemble cast & live band (baritone sax, drums, guitar) and ten original songs.
“A dysfunctional love story about the roller coaster hormonal journey of murderous menopause and remembering what home means.”
“Funny, engaging, skin-crawlingly familiar and hugely entertaining.”
