It's mad, daft and brilliant.

A lesbian musical...and, there's not even an acoustic guitar in sight!

The(ir) Blurb...

When you are in the Same Boat, you can glide or you can sink... Imagine you fall in love. You know this person to be the one you will spend forever with. You get married, have many adventures and after many years you move away to a remote place and start a small retirement business. You begin to realize your partner has not touched you or looked at you in a significant way in a while, a long while. They are freezing you out with evasions and excuses. The music is long gone and the silence is squeezing you. You have been married for 37 years but the last loving moment you can recall was 12 years ago. You are in your late 60's though, so what does it matter now? Suddenly a pair of musical lesbians arrives to stay at your little bed & breakfast. Yes, musical, they sing, all the time. You are shocked by the singing but inspired by the songs, in unexpected ways.
