Description

Steph and Rhona work part-time in dead-end jobs and rent a flat they can’t afford. Rhona turns to her boyfriend Mark for emotional and financial support whilst Steph goes out every night looking for a connection she can’t find. Feeling overworked and underappreciated, the girls decide to try a new money-making strategy: selling their used tights over the internet. Soon their plan begins to backfire and Steph and Rhona are left to question just how airtight their plan truly is.

Issues of sexual politics, poverty and exploitation are explored with humour in a good script delivered by an able and enthusiastic student cast. The only unrealistic aspect was the belief that selling used hosiery was somehow illegal: it is not. Otherwise this drama had an authentic feel which resonated with my own personal experience.

Bouquets & Brickbats (3/5 stars) 67 days ago

The script, wittily penned by Catrin Evans, is Sugar‘s greatest strength. It’s a quirky, original idea, and the writing is sprightly and lively. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud funny lines, but also some serious points being made – about poorly paid jobs, for example, and the fact that even full-time workers can’t pay their modest bills.
