What Would Sharron Davies Do?
By Lesley Emery
Janis Barlow needs a bit of change. Her marriage is shaky and at Angel Waves, the salon where she works, all the new hairdressing gimmicks are passing her by. Janis is getting older and she’s soooo unfit. Sharron Davies has always been her hero, though even that’s become a bit tarnished these days. Janis does what anyone would do… despite having no swimming pool she takes up synchronised swimming. You can learn anything on the YouTube these days…

From OMF Theatre, the makers of Barmy Nonsense and Apocalypse Kernow comes a radio play style comedy. In a world where everything changes, has Santa become outdated?

After an Edinburgh fringe debut and three years of pretending to be Charlotte Johnson, she’s ready to become reacquainted with Charlotte Evans – whoever that is...
