Radio sitcom focusing on Faye, a woman who wants to lead a glamorous lifestyle but is thwarted by laziness, disorganisation and work commitments.
Faye is anxious. She knows that today's women are "Fabulous". They have the job, the house, the colour-co-ordinated capsule wardrobe; they cope with singledom, marriage and having kids with peanut allergies; and they all do it effortlessly, with nothing more than a copy of Prima and a poem by Pam Ayres to guide them. So Faye wonders why she can't pull it off.
Fabulous unearths the slightly unhinged madwoman that lurks behind this "having it all" fantasy. The sitcom follows Faye as she tries to get through her day with her "fabulous" facade intact.
