Let Them Eat Cake!
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2011
Women on the Make consists of three mature female actors: Catherine Barrett, Hilary Strong and Angela Vick. Their first project is a sketch comedy with universal appeal that sets out to investigate the tenacious methods women have used across the centuries to get ahead.
In Let Them Eat Cake! we show three unsung women of a certain age behind the scenes at monumentally important moments in history. It's 1665 and there's a plague pandemic to be contended with. Fast-forward to 1798, a very bad year for kings and queens of France and finally our valiant ladies turn their gaze on classified war work.
You'll be laughing like Lord Haw Haw at their jolly antics as you dig for victory lozenges in your handbags to soothe your exhausted tonsils.
