Lesley Joseph Returns to the Stage in Hot Flush! The Naughtiest Comedy Musical in Town
“The audience shrieked their heads off and whooped in delight” – The Scotsman
Temperatures will rise, hormones will rage and pulses will gallop with the news that HOT FLUSH!, the naughtiest comedy musical in town, starring ‘Birds of a Feather’ icon Lesley Joseph, will tour the UK from 4 March 2014.
There won’t be a dry eye in the house from laughing as HOT FLUSH! takes us on an hilarious journey which delves into the friendships, the secrets, the laughter and tears and the ups and downs of 4 ordinary women …. and the many men in their lives! HOT FLUSH! really is the ultimate girl’s night out!
So, take a deep breath and get set to meet Myra (Lesley Joseph), Sylvia (Lori Haley Fox), Helen (Anne Smith) and Jessica (Ruth Keeling), a quartet of feisty menopausal women who get together every Tuesday night at a local bar to offer each other moral support, cry on one another’s shoulders, and of course most importantly, gossip and malign the men in their lives – 15 of them all played by Matt Slack! Collectively referred to as ‘The Hot Flush Club’, Myra, Sylvia, Helen and Jessica will not leave a stone unturned or a story untold in the matters of relationships with the opposite sex and the menopause!!!
Myra (Lesley Joseph) is a successful barrister, specialising in divorce. Myra had always considered herself a together sort of person until she began to develop symptoms of you know what…and her rat of a husband left her for a big blonde bimbo from his office; Jessica, the wife of a wealthy man, had the perfect life until she experiences something of a mid-life crisis; Sylvia, who has been married to Joe since she was twenty and has been bored with him since she was twenty-one, has decided that life is for living and is making up for lost time; Helen, a widow, whose only daughter has left for university, is feeling somewhat lonely but tries to take one day at a time – it’s just that sometimes several days attack her at once!
Lesley Joseph is best known for playing Dorian Green, the neighbour from hell, in the sitcom ‘Birds of a Feather’, alongside Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson. They recorded over one hundred episodes over a period of nine years, and Dorian Green became a national institution, watched at its height by 20 million people. In 2013 Lesley began filming for a brand new series of ‘Birds of a Feather’ along with her original co-stars, Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson. The ‘Birds’ are set to hit the screens again on 2 January 2014.
