Full press release
Due to overwhelming demand and following a total sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 and successful national tour, Fringe First Award winning hit stage show returns.
Two men of a certain age form an unlikely friendship through a shared love of Shirley Bassey. Together they begin a hilarious search for the women of their dreams, after their lives seem to have fallen apart. Acclaimed Scottish actors Andy Gray and Grant Stott star as Ross and Graham ... and all the women in their lives, in a "dazzling display of comic skill" The Scotsman.
The show is alarmingly fast paced, with a darkness underneath the hilarious, sometimes shambolic look at life, relationships and what it means to reach a more 'mature' age and stage and find themselves not where they'd thought they'd be.
Commissioned for the Edinburgh festival fringe by Karen Koren, Artistic Director of the Gilded Balloon, this is truly a play for Edinburgh. Starring two local favourites of Panto Dame fame - Andy Gray and Grant Stott - out to show they have a serious side too!
Written by the acclaimed playwright Philip Meeks, who also wrote the 2012 Gilded Balloon hit Murder, Marple and Me and directed by the much loved Sam Kane, this star-studded creative team sparkle.
