Synopsis:
a play about throwing caution to the dogs and career and consensus be damned, an amble through a tumultuous month in two working womens' lives, Fran- wife, mother, and nascent Labour MP - is desperate for some media attention to resuscitate her ailing electoral campaign. She gets rathe more than she bargained for from Kate, a glamorous news anchor, also embroiled in her own race for a plum presenter's job. Personal ambition, desire and honesty tussle on the stage.
