Amateur dramatic company Cardigan Theatre wowed audiences with their production of Calendar Girls and raised hundreds for charity in the process. When they staged the play in 2012 they put on an extra performance to raise even more money. Now they are back with another risqué show that promises to be just as entertaining for audiences. Sex Cells by Anna Longaretti, staged by Cardigan Theatre, is at Theatre Mwldan on June 23 and 24, at 7.30pm.
Funny yet poignant play
Sex Cells is set in a busy call centre, where four female employees of Aphrodite, a sex toy manufacturer, take orders over the phone for Teasey Maids, Titivators and rotating pearl g-strings.
This is the scenario for the next production by Cardigan Theatre, which will be staged at Theatr Mwldan on June 23 and 24.
It is not all titivating fun and frolics though, as under the cheerful customer service and banter these women nurse their own deep desires and disappointments. Sex Cells is a funny, yet poignant play about motherhood, relationships, friendship, anger, love and loss. And yes, it’s about sex too. And cake.
Sylvie is desperate to become a mother, but her single-minded approach is taking its toll on her marriage and causing friction with her co-workers.
With five children, Janice rarely finds time for herself or her husband.
Tiffany is young and single, looking for ‘the one’, but is careful about sacrificing her independence.
And Lily is trapped in a loveless marriage and estranged from her son, but buries her pain in wisecracks and work.
Their innocent manager Mr Causeway attempts to diffuse the tension between his staff while suppressing a longstanding crush on the oblivious Lily.
The play contains strong language and mild adult themes. Ticket are £7 and can be booked through the Theatr Mwldan box office.
