A funny, heart-warming look at what it really means to be an Essex girl …

Best mates Leanne and Kelly have lived in Southend-on-Sea their whole lives.

Larger than life Leanne is happy staying put, but Kelly secretly dreams of escaping her dull job and seeing the world.

When out-of-towner journalist Helen can't afford Leigh on Sea so moves in next door instead, events take a surprising turn.

As Leanne and Kelly take her under their wing, an unexpected friendship blooms in Spoons, and Helen soon has them reconsidering what it means to celebrate where you're from.

With the help of Leanne's Nan, eastender Roni, they take a sharp swipe at stereotypes women have been putting up with for decades.

Mischief ensues, fires are lit, and the Essex girls do what's in their blood: cause trouble - but not in a way anyone would expect …

The world premiere of a sharply observed authentic new play by Sadie Hasler (Pramkicker, Fran and Leni) whose work has been described as "a real gem" (The Guardian) and "desperately funny" (The Stage).
