Verity


Poor Verity. Her groom ditched her. Her relatives are hassling her. Her boss might sack her. Her mother despairs of her … and it's still only Monday.

Verity made her first appearance at the Old Fire Station in 2014, and now she’s back—and her life is still in a mess. Nia Williams’ musical is a glimpse of one woman’s ordinary disasters: office politics, online stalking, mismatched dates and an interfering family. As Verity tries to reinvent herself after a catastrophic wedding day,  she introduces us to her cynical mother and her busybody cousins, her bothered boss and bewildered colleagues. She also makes an unlikely friendship, joins Facebook and drinks a lot of alarmingly named cocktails.

This is a musical without hype, helicopters or even happy-ever-afters, but it does offer plenty of original songs and some weird and wonderful characters, as it gives a sneaky peek at one woman's life and dreams.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval
