A funny, sad and truthful romantic comedy about beating the biological clock.
Winner of an Edinburgh Fringe First Award
Barbs Marshall is a celebrity hairdresser in Glasgow. She is successful and well off, but she is 39 years old and almost deafened by the ticking of her biological clock. To make matters worse, her mother is a nag, her best friend is holding out on her, and her ex-husband has a new 22-year-old girlfriend. Then she meets a 26-year-old stranger who seems more than ready to oblige. But the complications are by no means over…
'People seldom write life-style comedies like Perfect Days for the stage anymore. The last scene has jokes so marvellous that they are greeted by rounds of applause as one blinks back the odd tear' – Financial Times
'The mix of pithy patter and heartwrenching poignancy works a treat' – The Times
'A huge popular hit' – Daily Mail
