ABOUT THE PLAY

Three seventy-something year old, hardworking cleaners, Olive, Gladys and Elsie, are faced with the axe from their jobs. They are past beyond their sell-by date and over the hill but they certainly won’t take redundancy lying down. They feel that their lives are coming to an end until a chance wrong number gives them a new business start-up idea –why not run a telephone sex line?

This is when “The Telephone Belles” is born and the fun really begins. They’ve got motive, opportunity and a lifetime of experience… some more than others, mind you. Provided that Elsie can teach the other two a few new tricks, there’s no reason why they can’t get rich quick. Of course, that depends if they can keep their operation a secret from their bosses, their families and their customers! They are the only chat-line girls with dusters, attitude and their very own bus passes.

A searing indictment of ageism in the 21st Century, heavily disguised as a hysterical, laugh-out-loud, heart-warming comedy.
