A busy week for Bird Of A Feather star Lesley Joseph who is helming the ladies show Hot Flush.
It’s at The Grove Theatre, Dunstable, this Wednesday for one night and in New Theatre Oxford a day later.
The lady certainly likes her one-night stands!
This outrageously comedy is a great girlie night out.
Hot Flush, the menopausal musical, takes us on an hilarious journey which delves into the friendships, the secrets, the laughter and tears and the ups and downs of four ordinary women …. and the men in their lives.
Get set to meet Myra (Lesley Joseph), Sylvia (Lori Haley Fox), Helen (Anne Smith) and Jessica (Ruth Keeling).
They are a quartet of feisty menopausal women who get together every Tuesday night at a local bar to offer each other moral support, cry on one another’s shoulders, and of course most importantly, gossip and malign the men in their lives – 15 of them all played by Matt Slack.
Collectively referred to as ‘The Hot Flush Club’, Myra, Sylvia, Helen and Jessica will not leave a stone unturned or a story untold in the matters of relationships with the opposite sex and the menopause.
Myra is a successful barrister, specialising in divorce. She had always considered herself a together sort of person until she began to develop symptoms of you know what…and her rat of a husband left her for a big blonde bimbo from his office.
Jessica, the wife of a wealthy man, had the perfect life until she experiences something of a mid-life crisis.
Sylvia, who has been married to Joe since she was twenty and has been bored with him since she was twenty-one, has decided that life is for living and is making up for lost time.
And Helen, a widow, whose only daughter has left for university, is feeling somewhat lonely but tries to take one day at a time – it’s just that sometimes several days attack her at once!
Lesley Joseph has seen a huge revival in her screen career with the well-deserved re-commissioning of Birds Of A Feather alongside Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson.
