COMING UP: New comedy by former Coronation Street actress Pauline Fleming, Dirty

CORONATION Street actress Pauline Fleming has announced the world premiere tour of her debut production, Dirty, which stops off at the Epstein Theatre this September. Dirty is a rib-tickling, laugh-out-loud comedy play about dating. Everyone has dated but not everyone has speed dated, just how wrong could it all go?

Four ladies, mid twenties to mid forties arrive at Henry’s Bar to attend a new speed dating evening. Henry’s is a bar known to all the ladies, all being from the same area, but all have a different tale to tell. Their stories are revealed through monologues, and interaction amongst each other. As the ladies start to reveal their backgrounds and opinions of each other, Henry an aging homosexual, begins to communicate the male point of view of relationships whilst the women begin to demonstrate their frustrations of the attitudes of men.

The cast is fronted by Craig Chalmers (Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat & a runner-up in Any Dream Will Do) and Eurovision disco diva Nicki French (Total Eclipse Of The Heart & Don’t Play That Song Again). Phil Hearne (Blood Brothers) plays the integral character of Henry, whilst Grace Bishop, Alan Stocks, Jo Mousley and Jessica Schofield complete this talented line-up.

Known to millions across the country as Coronation Street’s Penny King, is Pauline Fleming’s sensational writing debut and draws from her own humorous personal experiences and that of some of her friends and colleagues, each of who shared their experiences of the dating game in the 21st century. 

Dirty celebrates the ‘girl power’ feel of modern day relationships and promises to be the funniest and sauciest play to hit the UK stage this year. So put on your dating cap, meet up with your mates and join in the fun as the story unfolds in an empowering piece of ‘feel-good’ theatre.
