Pilot - Afternoon Play: High-Lites

Farce set in and around Bev's hairdressing salon, High-Lites, where a little lie spreads through the village like wildfire.

Further details

Lorraine Ashbourne and Rosie Cavaliero star in this Afternoon Play, written by Steve Chambers and Phil Nodding. The play is set in and around Bev's hairdressing salon, Highlites, where a little lie spreads through the village like wildfire.

Most people hope to leave a hair salon feeling better about themselves - not at Highlites. Chief stylist Beverley, the most evil and motiveless agent of destruction since Lex Luther, makes everyone she meets feel just a little bit worse. Shirley is her teflon sidekick.
