Catholic schoolgirls go wild! The choir trip to the capital goes badly wrong. Funny, sad and raucously rude. A play about singing, sex and sambuca.

Six girls on the cusp of change. Love, lust, pregnancy and death all spiral out of control in a single day. A musical play about losing your virginity and finding yourself.

Director Vicky Featherstone and Billy Elliot author, Lee Hall, create a tribute to being young, lost and out of control. / / #ourladies
