BeschreibungSet in the kitchen of a non-descript pub in Wakefield, this play focuses on how its four central characters: Caroline, the waitress, Richard the pub manager, Charley the chef and Connie, Charley's nemesis, reconcile their hopes and dreams with the inevitable disappointments of life.

Pressestimmen'A lovely, warm and tender play - complex in its account of female loyalty and written superbly... There is something quietly inspiring about Burt's view of fragility and excess' What's On 'It's the gutsy, colloquial vigour of the dialogue and the shrewd insight into female friendship that make Burt's debut piece such an attractive proposition' The Times 'Burt... has an ear for the lively dialect of West Yorkshire, humour and sympathy, and he slips in multicultural issues unobtrusively... I can see this play becoming an instant Fringe favourite' Independent on Sunday
