“A joyous evening: an affectionate, poignant and defiant tribute to female resilience” – Financial Times
Newly revised and streamlined for the London West End, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN whisks us off to sexy 1980s Madrid, and to the unravelling world of a voice-over artist – Pepa – Pepa’s wandering lover, the lover’s wacky ex-wife, their son and his fiancée, Pepa’s angsty model friend and her suspicious boyfriend, plus a lawyer, and a talkative taxi driver. All this black comic chaos is served up with a very specially laced gazpacho, and an irresistible Spanish-flavored beat.
