Production à la création:

The beginning of the story is set in London during the start of the 60's, and the years fly by as the story progresses, until it's nearly the 70's. The play is focused on the life and problems of five women in their 20's (The Red Girl), 30's (Green, Blue, and Yellow girls) and 40's (Orange girl) who all face tough situations, usually involving relationships. Throughout the story, all five women send letters to Gwendolyn Holmes, who works for the magazine "Shout!" in an advice column and gives them advice on how to deal with said issues.

The Yellow girl is the only American character in the show, who travelled all the way to Britain in order to see Paul McCartney. The Orange woman is shown as a full grown woman who is married, in her forties, and is starting to suspect her husband is cheating on her. The Blue girl is gorgeous and wealthy, and while she can go on and on about how perfect her life is, she does face some questions regarding her sexuality. The Green girl is a bit of a "slut" in the show, always hooking up with many men and throwing innuendos around. Finally, the Red girl is the youngest and most hopeful character; she is a bit hopeless in the beginning, stating she is not good-looking like other girls, until the man of her dreams comes along.

Commentaires : This show had undergone much revision since its premiere at the Jermyn Street Theatre in 2001. It had originated off-Broadway in 2000 and been re-written for a British setting and characters. It was further re-written and re-adapted for America when it was revived off-Broadway in July 2006. And now, once again, it re-appeared in London in yet another adaptation.
Commentaires longs: This second time in the UK the characters were more strongly drawn, though the story was basically the same: three girls come down to London from “Oop North” , sensible Betty with her eye on a job as a typist, glam-chick Georgina, who’s looking for fame and stardom, and sexy Ruby who is just looking for a man. They all meet at the South London hair salon run by Ruby’s Auntie Yvonne, who dishes out wisecracks and good advice by the bucket-load. (Each of the women was intended to represent a particular “type” of Sixties womanhood.) In the course of the show some thirty or so 1960s hit songs are performed whilst the man from “Shout” magazine links the stories and counts down the years
