Paperback : 9781848420786, 56 pages, August 2009


Love, sex, birth, death and salsa classes. Three generations of women. One extraordinary year.

Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the sambucas aren't getting rid of it. Lorraine attacks a customer and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist. Kay's got an itch 'down there' that Gem can't scratch. And if all that wasn't bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and – well – life is never the same again.

- The Times

"Delightful... a play that, like its characters, gurgles and giggles with life even in the face of death."

- Guardian

"Made me laugh and cry with pleasure... It's a blast."
