Women On The Verge... headed for the Lowry

WhatsOnStage logo
Two of television’s most recognisable faces, Louise Jameson (Eastenders, Dr. Who, Bergerac, Tenko) and Janet Dibley (Fat Friends, Where the Heart is, The Two of Us), star in the new production of Women on the verge of HRT.

Best friends Vera and Anna have a few things in common – being the ‘wrong’ side of 40, husband troubles and a love of Irish singing sensation Daniel O’Donnell to name but a few. During a trip to Donegal to see their idol in concert, Vera and Anna come face to face with the realities of their lives – loveless marriages, husbands in the clutches of mid-life crises, the menopause (or should that be ‘mental pause’) and the prospect of being thrown on the sexual scrap heap.

Assisted by a handsome young waiter (it helps that he looks like Daniel O’Donnell), Vera and Anna confront their fears and begin to realise that life doesn’t have to end when HRT begins.

Women on the verge of HRT is directed by Noreen Kershaw of hit channel 4 series Shameless and written by Marie Jones who wrote the Olivier and Evening Standard Award winning comedy Stones in His Pockets.

Women on the verge of HRT runs at the Lowry from Mon 22 June until Sat 27 June.
