The Thunder Girls are ready for the reunion dinner from hell, are you?
Next week sees the world premiere of the theatre adaption of Melanie Blake’s chart-topping novel The Thunder Girls, hit the stage at The Lowry Theatre in Salford, Manchester with the entire run sold out.
Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors when legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion?
What’s really going on behind the hugs and kisses at those reunion press conferences?
The Thunder Girls were a successful ‘80s girl band until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit the band to pursue a solo career taking with her, Rick, the Band’s manager. Chrissie broke the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of Bandmate, Roxanne.
At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to reunite the band to salvage herself from bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune by her toyboy husband.
But is there a price which can heal the wounds?
Or maybe some friendships never die, even if you want them to?
30 years later, can lightning strike twice?
The all-star cast includes Beverley Callard as Roxanne, Carol Harrison as Chrissie, Coleen Nolan as Anita and Sandra Marvin as Carly. Gary Webster will be playing the role of Rick, the girl’s manager.
