Titter I not.

Standard

As a fan of the ‘Carry on’ films I thought I’d go a see this comedy at the Whitley Bay Playhouse.
The previous reviews seemed to indicate to me that it might be along similar lines.
The story line is concerned with three elderly female married cleaners and a middle- aged single male vindictive supervisor who lives at home with his mother. Due to their company’s efficiency drive the cleaners are required to re-apply for their jobs, but they supervisor wants them to be made redundant. He verbally abuses them constantly as a way of driving them out. Yes, we’ve all encountered or worked for people like that during our own working lives, and I’m so….. glad I’m retired, so I don’t have to tolerate them anymore. The ladies have other ideas, such as running a sex chat line. I thought the premise of the play was a good fun idea and could be entertaining to watch. The audience was composed of 90% women between approximately the ages of 30 and 70 years. Once the play started, it became more like a Hen’s night out with screeching, shrieking from the audience responding to poor jokes and innuendos which were so far sign-posted they lost their punch. At times, some of the audience were in hysterics at the stage antics and dialogue, but from me, not even a titter! At times, I was so bored I started to feel sleepy and couldn’t wait until the end (well, I did have to see if it improved during the ‘whole’ performance). It didn’t for me, but for ladies who enjoy a good Hen night, this is for you.
