Paul Harper-Swan's musical is a raucous affirmation of female friendship
With a catchy soundtrack of R&B and disco hits repurposed for a Scottish audience, this is a raucous affirmation of female friendship and the secrets we share from the loos to the dance floor. Paul Harper-Swan's brash follow up to the hit musical I Will Survive follows Lauren, a bride-to-be, and her boozy pals as they are getting ready to hit the clubs for 'a last night of freedom' before her big day. It's a tour for those who like their humour saucy, their music loud and their drinks free-flowing.
The cheeky banter and choice of female-centric pop will appeal to anyone familiar with Harper-Swan's pantomime/musical format. Girls Night Oot! is a no-holds-barred celebration of womanhood in all its unabashed, un-airbrushed, glory.
The hardworking cast of four– Alison Rona Cleland, Natalie Tulloch, Lauren Ellis-Steele, and Donna Hazelton harmonise beautifully, even when life is less than perfect. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll possibly even pee in your TENA Lady at their shenanigans, which despite a brief moment of tension, resolves into a joyous singalong finale. 'L' plates, vodka shots and feather boas are not provided, so bring your own. Fellas – don't sit near the front.
