'You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar'
The tale of four long suffering cocktail waitresses. A must see for anyone who has had to endure the delights of hospitality or any actress who has ever picked up a monologue book in preparation for an audition.

Punchy dialogue and wit sharper than an electric rotary lawnmower! The Half Full Theatre cast are well suited to their roles. Acting their hearts out, whilst serving up whose timeless soliloquies that warmly invite you to listen a while.

Katie Redford brings straight talking, catty, know it all; Mel to life. Switching from unaffected to vulnerable with artistic flair. Showing the full effect of having to harden up to her grotty environment.

In the well suited surroundings of a functioning bar, the foursome depict the wide spectrum of clientele that come through their doors each night; from the local check out girls to drunken yuppies; from theatre luvies to lewd lads. They get their fair share of discourtesies and sheer abuse.

Some of the staging was a bit all out front and rigid. I was very surprised that the characters didn't act from behind the bar, seemed like a wasted space. But the performers kept my interest throughout and made me chuckle at the lunacy that is the 'weekend mob'.
