Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Meet the Bashment Housewives, Sun 5 Oct @ The Drum

September 30th, 2014 1:33 pm

It’s not easy being a young woman in Britain today. There’s so many pressures, so many expectations to live up to, and so many problems in the way of getting what you want. But some girls won’t let anything stop them from living the dream, even if it makes some enemies along the way… Meet the Bashment Housewives, coming to The Drum on Sun 5 Oct.

This explosive, ghetto-fabulous, rags-to-riches comedy fairy tale follows the lifestyles of four competitive young women who’ve worked their way out of their old neighbourhoods and into the entertainment business. Now they each live up-scale lives of wealth and indulgence, but find some parts of their old lives are harder to shake than they realized, and that more money usually just means more problems.

Bashment Housewives is the latest pieces from dynamic playwright Tennexa, also known as Tennesa Young, a rising star in the UK Theatre scene with a well-earned reputation for pulling no punches. Her stark, honest yet affectionate portrayals of the lives of young black people in modern Britain have come to The Drum before, with her first play Voice of the Youth proving a sell-out success. Her follow up Pimps and Riches, a compelling drug-dealing drama, was a similar hit, and we’re honoured to welcome her back from for the third part of an unofficial trilogy of amazing drama.

With an all-star cast including Debbie Diamond and Birmingham’s own DJ Countryman, this side-splitting comedy proves that if money makes the world go round, but Money can’t buy you Love, then Love just might be the answer to all life’s problems…
