Description

This hilarious dark comedy welcomes you into Kurl Up and Dye, a warm and friendly though largely unsuccessful Yorkshire beauticians. The salon, run haphazardly by Sarah, Michelle, Amanda and Jo, receives a wide range of regulars – though none as loyal as 93-year-old Mrs Clarke. When a simple bikini wax lands her dead on the table, the girls go to unusual lengths to cover it up and save their beloved beauticians from closing. Loyalties are tested, police turn up and friendships are strained... How much pain can one bikini wax cause? Expect mayhem, manslaughter and manicures.

Kurl Up and Dye is a wonderful, uplifting comedy about a salon that faces up to an unusual day. Mrs Clarke, a 93 year old, goes in for a bikini wax, and unfortunately winds up dead on the treatment table. The salon, owned and run by Mandy (Louise Nicholls), erupts...

Edinburgh Reporter (4/5 stars) 95 days ago

Mandy, Michelle, Sarah (Martha Johnson) and Jo (Tara Worthington) form the staff of a slightly chaotic beauty salon somewhere in Yorkshire. Each character is well defined – in the space of the first few minutes we know that Michelle is a feisty and tarty, Mandy (the owner) cynical and exasperated, Sarah scatty and silly, Jo a star-struck teenager. If the women are stereotypical, it doesn’t matter – the banter between them is spot-on and hilarious.
