The Art of Taking Tea or Illicit Liasons (2009)

The Art of Taking Tea: A 1930’s tea shop – five women wait in eager anticipation for illicit liaisons that never materialise. As their unfulfilled desire turns first to disappointment and then to angst, it seems only taking of tea followed by a large plate of sweet stuff will appease the anger of these spurned women and satiate their appetite. Five rebellious waitresses compound the chaos that ensues as each makes her own desires and cravings felt.

Waitresses – Jen Angharad, Linda Bullock, Olivia Jones, Liz Harris and Geraldine Hurl.

Ladies who take tea: Carol Brown, Lynn Hoare, Jill Kirkpatrick, Karen LeBeau and Shirley Stansfield.

Original 1930’s recordings with live keyboard from Julian Martin and supported by the music of Miles Behind.
