"Funny? Very definitely. Some of the audience members were weeping with laughter and guffaws a-plenty echoed around the theatre. Many rose to their feet as the cast took their curtain calls." -The British Theatre Guide
It's about friendship. It's about solidarity. And it's about sex. Three old ladies are nearing the end of their working days, hastened on by a less than pleasant boss who reckons they all ought to be fired. The women are getting a bit on in life to start fresh, but luck sends them a solution via a wrong number: A bloke who thinks he's called a sex line!
Hesitant at first, Olive, and Peggy are egged on by Elsie that they could make a lot of money. So they take the leap and call themselves the "Telephone Belles" and that's when the fun really begins.
