It’s Edinburgh in the 1980s. High unemployment, rubbish working conditions and rampant sexism. Sound familiar? Meet Adele, Carole, Mel and Nicky – four waitresses at the Shakers cocktail bar. Playing a multitude of different characters – customers, checkout girls, lads out on a spree, lecherous media types and more – the girls lay bare the desperation underneath their cheerful public faces. Fast-moving, by turns hilarious and tragic, punctuated by music of the time, the play highlights how little the lives of women and those struggling to get by have changed over the decades.
