LIP­STICK DREAMS

OPEN­ING Novem­ber 16 is Lip­stick Dreams by He­len O’Con­nor and Si­mon Hop­kin­son and di­rected by Sue Clapham. Lip­stick Dreams is a light-hearted look at the lives of four dif­fer­ent women liv­ing in a small coun­try town, each with their own dreams and dis­ap­point­ments, their thoughts of what might have been and the in­evitabil­ity of what re­ally “is”.

They all seem to set­tle for sec­ond best, then one day they re­alise that their dreams could be­come a re­al­ity, that “they can do it”. And that’s what these four women do, they take a chance! They let their hair down and have the time of their lives. A must-see play full of laugh­ter, tears and fun, with toe-tap­ping songs from the “swing­ing 60s” that will have you danc­ing in the aisles.
