Sally Hughes says -" I have long been looking for a play that matches the success and popularity of STEPPING OUT and CALENDAR GIRLS. Well, I have found it in this wonderfully funny and heart-warming play charting the lives of 7 women who join a local Belly Dancing Class. Can you imagine the comic potential in that situation? I am delighted to welcome back playwright and director Marcia Kash who, along with fellow writer Mary Chisholm, has created this uplifting world premiere for The Mill."
When Marnie drags her much put-upon bestie Jane to a belly dancing class they are swept into a shimmying circle of sometimes endearing, sometimes outrageous women. Their friendship is tested through the demands of their spouses, babies, work lives and the arrival of some unexpected roommates. But through all the belly aches, dilemmas, betrayals and some very “special” cakes, the two friends learn to face life's challenges as they prepare for a special charity night at their local Turkish restaurant. You are guaranteed to leave The Mill with full hearts and dancing bellies - or is that full bellies and dancing hearts?
