Former Brookside star and television personality Claire Sweeney is back with a brand new comedy about life’s three biggest mysteries; dating, men and finding Mr Right.

Not content with her already rich and varied CV, Claire decided to add script-writing to her list of skills as the co-writer of Sex in Suburbia.

She found inspiration for the show during an impromptu chat with her friends about disastrous dating experiences – something to which many may be able to relate.

And when the audience was left in fits of laughter at the play’s opening, Claire knew that she had struck comedy gold.

Penny Crowe is the host of a late-night radio phone-in.

As Britain’s leading Agony Aunt, she takes calls about every date from hell and the occasional one from heaven.

She is more than happy to dish out relationship advice, but is she as happy to take it?

Packed full of sensational songs including I’m Every Woman, I Want To Break Free and Somebody Else’s Guy, this is a show that will make you laugh, cry and dance in the aisles.

Tickets cost £24 and £22, with discounts available for Friends of the Grove Theatre, concessions and wheelchair users.
