sexandthecity18.jpg Sex! Where? In the city!

A one-woman parody of Sex And The City is whooshing into Whitley Bay, Durham, Middlesbrough and South Shields this May. I’ll drink a cosmopolitan to that.

Can it really be twenty years ago when four single ladies emerged onto our TV screens in search of love, shoes and tantric sex? Yes indeed and the fab four managed to instil themselves into our lives like no others before or since. And tasked with bringing Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda back to life is Kerry Ipema who has won raves for her show in the US. She frothed: “There’s a lot of drinking, there’s a lot of fun, there’s a lot of laughter, and I like to source a lot of material from each audience, so each show is different. But I think you can expect from the show to laugh a whole lot, hopefully so much that your belly hurts, and to leave feeling empowered.” It’s been a long time since I’ve hurt my belly AND felt empowered afterwards, but hopefully this show will rectify that sorry state of affairs.
