oh no it isn’t!

They’re the best of sisters onstage but the worst of friends off it.

It’s the final performance of Cinderella in a moth eaten, regional theatre and backstage tensions threaten to boil over onstage.

Will the egotism, oneupmanship and sexual politics remain confined to the dressing room?

Will the ugly sisters keep the professional professional and the personal personal?

Will we ever find out what happened during Babes In The Wood?

Based on a lifetime of experience onstage and backstage OH NO IT ISN’T is a hilariously funny and beautifully moving new play exploring the highs and lows of life in the theatre.

Using real anecdotes and stories it is an impassioned yet tender love letter to the world of performance.
