About This Show

Hot Flushes is a re-imagining of the BHS pension crisis: it’s a Country and Western musical about fiscal responsibility and homicidal menopausal women. It’s 2016. Lady Green is on her £100m SuperYacht, Sir Green is taking questions from the Select Committee, and Annie, who has worked thirty years for BHS, is reeling from the loss of her pension. Croydon branch is closing but there’s no closure for Annie, not even in the stoic lyrics of her favourite Country songs. That’s until a chance encounter in the ladies’ fitting rooms with a member of the National Rifle Association. It seems Annie has a lot to learn from the women of the Round Rock chapter of the Well-Armed Woman… It seems Sandra has much to learn about getting your dues from the Round Rock chapter of the Well-Armed Woman… Inspired by the personal testimonies of activist pensioners, with a Country score that’s catchier than Ebola, Hot Flushes is the only show you’ll see this year that puts chutzpah and foot spa in the same lyric.
