A comedy about ‘over the hill’ cleaners who start ‘talking dirty’ and end up ‘filthy rich’!
Starring Suzanne Paul, Rima Te Wiata & Lynda Milligan
Directed by David McPhail
“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.
The show broke box office records when it was first performed in Newcastle. Audiences in Glasgow and Edinburgh demanded another chance to see this laugh-a-minute look at sex and the over seventies. The kind of show you can be 28 or 88 and still get it.
