One of ‘Blood Brothers’ writer Willy Russell’s most up-tempo comedies is being brought to the Playhouse this summer. Set in a trashy Liverpool disco, this is another of Russell’s master pieces which combines working class social commentary with hard hitting comedy. The action is mainly in the gents and women's toilets of the disco where both Linda (The Bride) and Dave (The Groom) have decided to hold their stags and hens nights, not knowing that their other half is at the same place. When Linda's ex-boyfriend arrives this causes an uproar and when Linda's hen party get a say in all whats happening the two groups gang together to stop Linda taking up the offer of an escape with her ex Peter she is then forced with a difficult decision - to stay or to go.
