There’s just a few days left to catch the world premiere of a fab new romantic comedy at The Dukes before it transfers to Oldham Coliseum.

No Fat Juliets, a new play penned by and starring Lancaster actress Sue McCormick, finishes its Dukes run this Saturday 12th October.

This plus-sized play with music is set in a failing Lake District hotel where Sue’s character, a part-time actress, is working as a barmaid.

When an old flame arrives in town with another size zero starlet, Beth starts to question her ambitions and finds comfort in the arms of a charming poet.

No Fat Juliets is a co-production with Oldham Coliseum Theatre, where it will be performed from 15th - 26th October, by Sue’s own company, Ladybrain Productions.
