I do love me a bit of Anita Dobson so I was pleased to see her name appear in the cast for 3Women, the new play by Katy Brand playing at the Trafalgar Studios 2. An intergenerational take on women’s experience over the last 60 years or so.
Award-winning comedian Katy Brand has made her playwriting debut with 3Women, now running at Trafalgar Studios until 9 June 2018. Consensus? This is hopefully the first of many more plays to come from Brand. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite review highlights for the play and its three female leads – Anita Dobson, Debbie Chazen, Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Time to get booking before it’s sold out!
Walking into Trafalgar Studios and seeing such a realistically dated four-star hotel suite, I thought, ‘oh, good, Katy Brand is going to satirise everything about sixties’ drawing room comedy’. Instead of which, she’s written one.

Katy Brand’s should be rightly proud of her first full-length play, 3Women. Her comedy instincts have served her well and she clearly has a flair for drama which I wish this production had exploited more.

So having not gotten round to seeing The Girls for whatever reason (mainly that I didn’t want to), I finally bit the bullet last week and within 24 hours, the show posted closing notices for its West End run. The Girls will then head out on a two year national tour from August 2018, aiming to visit 42 theatres across the UK
David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, the producers of Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s new musical comedy THE GIRLS, based on the true story, the film and the award-winning play by Tim Firth, Calendar Girls, are delighted to announce that the production will return home to Yorkshire and open at the Leeds Grand Theatre on 15 August 2018 and visit 42 theatres …
The Olivier Award nominated musical comedy version of The Girls by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow has been much anticipated this year and I’ve scarcely been able to contain my excitement about finally going to see it.
In 1998 a husband of one of the wives in a WI branch in Yorkshire was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The close-knit picture postcard village was rocked by this devastating news.
While Mrs Henderson Presents may have been drawn from the Windmill Girls’ wartime titillating tonic, Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s The Girls is of a more classic vintage, savouring the sauce stirred up when the mostly mature membership of a northern branch of the WI (Women’s Institute) set out to raise funds for a local hospital by posing nude for a calendar.
Musicals are nothing if they do not explore the human condition – and The Girls pulses with a humanity that touches almost everyone in the audience.
