Welcome to Sad Girls Club, where girls are allowed to be... well... sad. Boyfriend broke up with you? Patriarchy getting you down? Rape culture being a pain? Crying behind your pal's garage ruining New Year's again? Have no fear because Sad Girls Club is here! Sadness loves company and no one knows that better than Jamie. Dealing with a break up, she creates the Sad Girls Club and forces her nearest and dearest to join, and you are invited! Because as we all know being a woman in 2022, talking about anything is a minefield.

Such talent in this show. It's so real, so funny, but also so heartfelt - it really reflects the level of writing and gives a platform for the acting to truly shine. Blew me away! Seriously, go see it while you still can. I'll be going again for sure.

An extremely funny, clever and relatable comedy with sharp writing. The four talented actors do brilliantly to make you laugh and feel nostalgic about life in general. Highly recommend this show.

Marc M 55 days ago

Really powerful and honest portrayal of how "sadness" is often regarded as a unwelcome trait for female-identifying & "non rich white male" folks.

Brutally harsh at times yet strong self-satire/relatable humour that uplifts whilst delivering a message that needs echoing.

Euan Lauder 56 days ago
