“A great night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would go to see it again - there were so many laughs that I think I may have missed some.” - Mary Murphy, Budapest Times columnist
Pretext’s middle aged heroines, Cathy, Lucy and Anne must face the unfortunate truth that men their own age are abandoning their dating pool for the younger model. But rather than drown their sorrows in martinis, they fight back with a plan to seduce hot, young men – while they still can. The consequences are not exactly what they anticipated, but it works a treat. That is, until they are caught in their own web of deceit.
Written and directed by the company’s Artistic Director, Virginia Proud, she also takes to the stage with Beth Spisljak, Esther Holbrook and Madeleine Damasdi. The show debuted in Budapest in October 2014 to an enthusiastic response -
“Great writing, excellent performances - thanks so much for a splendid piece!” - Harlan Cockburn, Radio Q
“There are plenty of laughs to be had, from knowing snickers to the more full-bellied kind.” - Scott Alexander Young, Budapest In Your Pocket
