THE SMASH HIT, MULTI AWARD WINNING SHOW
WINNER BEST OF EDINBURGH AWARD 2009
This remarkable first play has sold out theatres in New York, London, Dublin and Paris, and at the Edinburgh Festival, winning the hearts of audiences and the admiration of critics.
Kay’s got an itch that Gem can’t scratch (but maybe Kermit can)… Lorraine attacks a customer at work and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist … Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the Sambucas aren’t getting rid of it. Then there’s Paul, who’s just using Amber until he can get to Australia … and there's the hairy man who fancies Lorraine but fails to rise to the occasion… and of course Gem, who doesn’t like the neighbours coming in to ‘mind’ him. And if all that wasn’t bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and well....life is never the same again.

‘ ... any woman out there facing down the barrel of marriage,
childbirth or old age would be well advised to ditch the sambuca
and come to Little Gem instead.’ – ***** Time Out, London
