Homemade cakes, dinner time cocktails and vintage clothing sparkle in this award-winning comedy where one couple’s fantasy has perhaps gone a little too far?!
Judy and Johnny seem to be the perfect couple – quite sickeningly happy, in fact. Sweet peas in the garden; homemade lemon curd in the kitchen; marital bliss in the bedroom.
But is their happily married life everything it seems? What happens when things begin to unravel; after all, the perfection of a 1950s domestic goddess is difficult to live up to in a 21st century world.
Discover how nostalgia ain’t what it used to be in Laura Wade’s brilliantly funny Olivier Award winning comedy.
