The Elicit Theatre Company presents Femmetamorphosis, a comedy drama set-in modern-day London. A lingerie party is arranged by a bored wife fed up with mundane routine of married life. Add some sexy lingerie, a Caribbean twist rum punch, and some unconventional relatable characters. Creating a relish of ingredients with laugh out loud humour and a positive feel-good message about friendships, trails, and tribulations.
Ruth is throwing a lingerie party at her modest home which she shares with her childhood sweetheart and husband Wesley. Among her guests, which include her best friend Yazzmen, a self-proclaimed Cougar. Cycelea is a devout Christian, Edith who is struggling to get over a recent break up with her boyfriend and Destini, the exotic neighbour from next door who is rumoured to be married to a footballer.
And finally, Krystal the HotLove lingerie host presents the group with a range of naughty suspenders and mankinis as talk turns from lingerie to heartbreak. Taking inspiration from comedies such as The Real McCoy, French and Saunders and Desmond's this is an original comedy about women coming together in the name of rum punch, lingerie, and love.
Femmetamorphosis tells a touching tale of sisterhood and solidarity, spanning different generations, races, creed, and sexuality, to powerfully portray the adversity women face and how they can triumph over it.
