Psychobitches is an all-star sketch show set in one room that sees some of history's most famous women psychoanalysed.
Resting comfortably on the chaise longue of a therapy room, the most iconic women from history open up to a discerning if slightly judgemental psychiatrist (Rebecca Front) about their thoughts, fears and flaws. From Sylvia Plath trying to write cheerier poems to the Bronte sisters squabbling like petulant toddlers, Psychobitches provides some illuminating insights into the minds of these famous females.
Also with issues to get off their chest are Eva Peron who is struggling to moderate her feelings of grandiosity and an ageing Margot Fontaine refusing to hang up her ballet slippers. While a senile Joan Crawford and Bette Davis compete over who was the biggest screen siren, Audrey Hepburn steps into the sanctum of trust to test the psychiatrist's patience with her cutesy quirks.
