Menopause Made Me Do It

By Devon Williamson

Auditions 22 and 24 May 2018 @ 7.00pm

OSPA Theatre, Hall Road, Onewhero


It has been ten years since the last reunion of the Crazy Ladies. Menopause has arrived and the ladies are crazier than ever. The mission is to convince Kay, the gun toting tom-boy, to marry Shaun (the guy she once kidnapped and held accountable for the sins of all men).

The five menopausal women are lured to a motel by a kidnapper who has seriously underestimated his prey. A weekend of madness and mayhem ensues as the women seize control and marry the kidnapper off to one of their group.

It's hilarious... poignant... utterly mad.
