THE mysteries of men, dating, finding Mr Right and motherhood are explored in Sex In Suburbia, a new comedy starring Claire Sweeney, which comes to the Playhouse for one night only on Monday.

Written by Sweeney and Mandy Muden, and directed by Ken Alexander, with set designed by Mark Walters, Sex In Suburbia is packed with revealing and raunchy stories set to a backdrop of musical anthems, including I’m Every Woman, I Want To Break Free and Somebody Else’s Guy.

With West End and touring credits that include Chicago, Guys and Dolls and Educating Rita, and television roles in Brookside, Clocking Off, Merseybeat and Candy Cabs, Sweeney has established herself as one of the most popular and versatile talents in the UK.

She is joined on stage by Lindzi Germain as Penny Crowe, the host of a late-night radio phone-in.

As Britain’s leading Agony Aunt, Penny takes calls about every date from hell and the occasional one from heaven.

She is more than happy to dish out relationship advice, but is she as happy to take it..?

Sweeney joins Penny on her show as a ‘relationship expert’ while Carl Patrick revels in multiple roles which take in frigid footie fans, karate chopping kids and outrageous radio host, Rory Reynolds.

As a way of keeping Sex in Suburbia ‘real’, sassy and brave audience members, will be invited to share their own personal dating stories live on stage and will be rewarded with an Ann Summers goodie bag.

You have been warned.

Filled with fun, laughter, emotion and truth, Sex In Suburbia is based on real stories from real women.

Age advisory 16+ with some strong language and adult themes.

Sex In Suburbia, The Playhouse, Greenside Place, Monday, 7.30pm, £19-£28.90, 0844-871 3014
