The show based on the 20th Century Fox Picture film starring Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin returns the Capital for a week long run from 11-16 November.

It tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy - three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss.

Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the women manage to reform their office - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
