The Flannelettes are in town…
Delie is special and she’s won a trophy for picking up litter from the Mayor. Every summer she goes on her holidays to her Aunty Brenda. Aunty Brenda runs a women’s domestic abuse refuge in a Yorkshire mining village. Delie and her Aunty Brenda and a pawnbroker called George who wears a dress, are The Flannelettes– A Motown tribute band.
Delie is in her twenties but with a mental age of ten. Roma used to be on the streets in Rotherham but now she’s Delie’s new best friend.
They share secrets.
The Glee Club Award Winning Writer Richard Cameron’s tough new play takes an uncompromising look at love and violence in a shattered community, with The Flannelettes providing a bitter sweet sound track of sixties soul.
