Waiting For Gateaux

The Customs House, South Shields

“Mo-tivators is the worst health and fitness club in the country. Run by Maureen a ‘big-boned’ fifty-something widow from a small hall in the middle of nowhere it only attracts clientele who have nothing better to do.

Jackie comes to get away from her philandering husband and she’s started to bring her young sister Whitney along to keep her out of trouble.  Donald comes because he secretly loves Maureen – he’s lost 12 stone so far – if he doesn’t ask her out soon there’ll be nothing left of him!

Things seem to be on the up when Sophie, a researcher for a reality TV programme, comes to check out the club but when a snowstorm arrives it brings with it revelations which will change their lives forever in this comedy about friendship, frostbite and French fries.”

“Leaves the audience with a smile on its face … Paul Dunn clearly has fun playing the chap with a hang up over the lack of male changing facilities.”
