Now in their early forties their lives have taken very different turns however, they share one thing: none of them has been able to find true love. The women have never met, apart from lying side-by-side in incubators as babies and now, when they come together during Denise Robinson"s phone-in section on This Morning.
Told through a set of comedy monologues, voice-over, music and song, the ladies catastrophic lives are exposed: Stacey Broon is a bitter pub landlady and sadistic husband beater; Madeleine Morningstar is a failed Vegas stripper; Lady B is the racist and deluded president of a decaying tennis club and Grainia O"Grady is an ungainly and gullible Irish nurse.
