This comedy play is set in modern day Northern England. Think Coronation St ish. It follows the story of Molly and Dolly, lifelong friends & neighbours. Dolly has become more confused and forgetful lately. Her kids are ready to sell up everything and move her into a home. Molly would do anything for her best friend, in a heartbeat. But can she do what needs to be done?
Their kids have all grown up together - school, holidays - and now an unfortunate love triangle has developed. AND what have Stan & Ernie been potting around with down at the allotment?
