Entertainer Cilla Black stars as the lead role in each of six female-centric sitcom plays. Following the success of 1975's Cilla's Comedy Six, she takes on another set of feisty and fascinating women making their way in the world.

In She'll Have To Go, Cilla is reunited with Keith Barron as husband-and-wife Linda and Henry Pearson. This time, the woman coming between them is his mother.

In Home And Away, Cilla plays footballer's wife Barbara Norton. Husband Kenny may be his club's biggest star, but when an opportunity to move to a larger team arises, Barbara puts her foot down.

In Desirable Property, Cilla is Helen Parker, currently undergoing an acrimonious separation from husband Derek. She is horrified when he turns up to look around a house that she has just made an offer to buy.

In Sisters, Cilla plays teacher Carole. Having been set up on a blind date by her sister Liz, a model, a mistaken phone call leads to a most awkward encounter with photographer Roger.

In Get Me To The Church, Cilla returns to the role of Christine Bradshaw, and it's now finally her own wedding day. Unfortunately, as Dad says, "When I look at Lawrence, I'd rather be giving you away to Barnardo's".

In Who's Your Friend?, Cilla plays typist Vera. Waking up in her boss's flat after his engagement party, he is keen to make sure that his managing director - also his future father-in-law - doesn't find out about her overnight presence...
