Val, a separated single mum and student of homeopathy, promises to be ready in exactly 10 minutes to go out with her boy friend – but people and objects conspire against her. A funny, frantic farce with a cast of thousands. It was written for 3 very versatile actors, but has been performed with large casts too. Women with complicated lives and a lot on their plates will identify!
