A Country and Western musical about BHS.
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…
A selected play for Bristol Old Vic Open Session 2018/19, Hot Flushes re-imagines the BHS pension crisis and gives it a different ending. With catchy original songs, one-liners and two hard-to-forget homicidal, menopausal heroines, Hot Flushes is probably the only show you’ll see this year that puts chutzpah and footspa in the same lyric.
