The Flannelettes Paperback / softback

Part of the Modern Plays series

Description

She could teach more folk round `ere about what's bloody well important in their lives - when it comes down to it.

What matters . . . That precious bit of you that gets buried in shit, and she's there clearin' it all away. Delie is special and she's won a trophy for picking up litter from the mayor.

Every summer she goes on her holidays to her Aunty Brenda who runs a women's domestic abuse refuge in a Yorkshire mining village.

Delie and her Aunty Brenda and a pawnbroker called George who wears a dress are The Flannelettes - a Motown tribute band.

Delie is in her twenties but with a mental age of ten; when she meets Roma - who used to live on the streets in Rotherham - the two become best friends, sharing each others' secrets. By the award-winning writer of The Glee Club, The Flanelettes is a tough, uncompromising play which looks at love and violence in a shattered community, all playing to a bittersweet soundtrack of Sixties soul.
