LOVE AFFAIRS: SYNOPSIS
character-based stand-up show based on the lives of four women who were born on
the same day, in the same hospital, in Glasgow. Now in their early forties their
lives have taken very different turns however, they share one thing: none of them
has been able to find true love. The women have never met, apart from lying side-by-side
in incubators as babies and now, when they come together during Denise Robinson's
phone-in section on This Morning.
through a set of comedy monologues, voice-over, music and song, the ladies catastrophic
lives are exposed: Stacey Broon is a bitter pub landlady and sadistic husband
beater; Madeleine Morningstar is a failed Vegas stripper; Lady B is the racist
and deluded president of a decaying tennis club and Grainia O'Grady is an ungainly
and gullible Irish nurse.
