Dirty Dusting by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood. Directed by MARGARET BENNETT15/06/23
When the office workers go home, it’s time for Elsie, Gladys and Olive to move in to clean - not forgetting Dave, their supervisor - who thinks he’s in charge.
The hardworking ladies have worked together for many years. They all have families and have experienced and shared the trials and tribulations of difficult times.
Now they are suddenly informed that the company is bringing in an office-cleaning agency. They will have to re-apply for their jobs! Of course, all three are worried, because at their time of life, their chances of re-employment seem slim.
Thanks to a phone call which turns out to be a wrong number, Olive comes up with an unusual opportunity to make a bit of money – and before we know it, the ladies are using the office phones to run a sex chat-line over their last working weekend. After all, what have they got to lose?
Will their plan work? Will they make any money? Will they be able to handle the chat-line requests?!! Will they be found out???!!!
Dirty Dusting is a poignant comedy of a group of warm-hearted ladies who have overcome adversity many times in their lives and will do so again. And, although the premise is about a sex chat-line, we are left to imagine the adult sexual references on the other end of the telephone line, but expect plenty of comic, saucy references on the part of the ladies!
AUDITIONS ARE ON THURSDAY 15 JUNE AT 7.30 PM. PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE A READING OF THE PLAY ON TUESDAY 13 JUNE AT 7.30 PM. ALL WELCOME!
Margaret is looking for three ladies of a mature age and a bloke.
