The play was a West-End hit for Dawn French, and nominated for an Olivier Award. Review from the Guardian:
“Angela is a lapsed Catholic whose first reaction to her mid-life abandonment by her Jewish husband is one of joy. But gradually reality hits home. Vengeful loathing of her husband’s sausage-lipped young lover is accompanied by awful meetings with a misogynist divorce lawyer and unfulfilling dates with the lonelyhearts brigade. Like many divorcees, Angela clings to the hope that even a rocky marriage can be restored; but, as her husband trades in one bimbo for another, she is forced to confront the vanity of her dreams.
“But the show’s charm lies in the fact that [the writer] pushes the absurdity of the situation as much as its pathos. Angela is a raging hypochondriac who imagines she has bowel cancer when she has overdosed on beetroot. Even her desperate attempts to find an erotic undertow in late-night counselling chats are as funny as they are sad…”
