The wickedly observant comedy 'STAGS AND HENS' by WILLY RUSSELL, the author of Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine and Blood Brothers.
It's 1981. LIVERPOOL.
STAGS AND HENS takes place in the Ladies and Gents Toilet's of a decaying 1980's Liverpool Dancehall.
Newly Wed's to be - Dave and Linda - unbeknownst to each other, have both decided to hold their Stag and Hen Parties in the same venue.
Fuelled by bucket loads of Baby Sham, Black Velvets and an unquenchable appetite for drama …
The evening takes a sharp turn away from the merriment, and in Willy Russell's unmistakable style, the play combines comedy with acrid truth, and hits off brilliantly the herd instinct driving both sexes onward and bed-ward.
Can anyone escape the pre determined future's written for them?
A bleakly funny and wickedly perceptive study of communities, puritanism, waste and the hedonistic opportunities of the 1980's.
Lively, coarse, well-organised, truthful and very funny.
The question is …
Will they be at the Church On Time?
