Menopause the Musical

Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th November @ 8pm
The Everyman

The hilarious celebration of women and the change. The hysterical and uplifting Menopause The Musical is heading on another sell-out Irish tour this autumn. Packed full of one-liners about hot flushes and memory loss backed by an instantly recognisable soundtrack of comedy parody versions of pop classics, the all-singing, all-dancing comedy is back!

The all-female cast of Mary Byrne (X Factor), Linda Nolan (The Nolans), Niamh Kavanagh (Eurovision) and Sue Collins (The Nualas) make fun of their woeful lives experiencing “The Change”, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges.
