Like a Virgin

Coming this month to Granary:

A hilarious take on the trials and tribulations of teenage life in the early nineties. Maxine and Angela both obsessed with Madonna show 2 different sides to being a teenager while struggling to cope with shocking news.

A romp through the bubble-gum years of teenage life. Angela and Mazine, besotted with Madonna, play truant from school, form a band, attempt to write songs and, with hairbrushes in hand, live out their adolescent dreams of becoming famous. Meanwhile Angela’s mother, Viv, struggles to come to terms with her marriage break-up and her daughter’s explosive lifestyle, as the play roller-coasters through hope, sex, ambition, despair, and, most of all, love.
