Back to knock some sense back into the nation, The Grumpy Old Women return with their brand spanking new show FIFTY Shades of Biege!


This jam-packed show comes from the original authors, Jenny Éclair and Judith Holder. It includes all the most Grumpy topics... learning the art of 'Grumpy Grooming', the joy of large pants, a free nagging master class (how to get your own way without him even noticing), beards for women, which style will suit you?


Complimentary Anger Management workshop, middle-aged drinking: the rules, navigating the smorgasbord of worry, voluntary euthanasia vs. retirement, how to customise an unwanted pole dancing kit and a mercifully brief Zumba demonstration. All this and more!

Inspired by the ratings-busting BBC Two series and best selling Grumpy old Women handbook, Grumpy Old Women Live, is a celebration of the pre-, peri- and post-menopausal female condition. Three live and rather furious females take to the stage for an orgy of middle aged mayhem, with not a thong in sight. Don't forget your bifocals.


Come and bask in an orgy of fury and big laughs in this glorious live version of the hit TV show.
