A celebration of friendship and being secure in yourself and your own quirkiness.
Sally and Rhiannon make a delightful double act. Sally is Irish and loves Cocoa Pops. Rhiannon is from Bath and likes to wear Pink Lady apple head pieces to fancy dress parties. Both of them are quite different to one another but complement each other wonderfully on stage. They introduce the show stating that they have lost their pianist to a Hollywood movie. Not to worry though as a cardboard figure of Ryan Gosling is here to fill in. They take us through the Wikipedia List of Doom that includes a number of famous icons who are all younger than them. Adele mentors them in an amusing Big Brother manner through a distant speaker telling them to write songs based on their own experiences. But how do you write a love song if you’ve never been in love?
Rhiannon delivers a number of witty anecdotes in this show, my favourites including her membership to a beanie baby club and meeting a bursary officer at a party named Grant. Sally presents a hilarious sketch about texting before emojis and the aftermath of a messy night out.
Although this is a light hearted comedy it also provides us with an inspirational and powerful message- to go easier on your younger self and that being single does not make you a less valid person. This show is a celebration of friendship and being secure in yourself and your own quirkiness. Sally and Rhiannon are contagious and you cannot help being taken in by the feel good vibes that this show has to offer.
