Be careful what you wish for!

It’s a dark and stormy night in small-town America. Three divorcees, frustrated by the constant scrutiny and disapproval of their buttoned-up neighbours, fantasise about their ideal man.  Coincidentally, or maybe not, the brash, vulgar and, on the face of it, distinctly unappealing Darryl Van Horne arrives in the neighbourhood. It doesn’t take long before he uses his charms to release their creative energy along with their inhibitions!  But hell hath no fury like three women scorned and pretty soon Alex, Sukie and Jane use their newly discovered powers to teach their depraved seducer a lesson.

Craig Revel Horwood returns to direct at The Watermill putting his own inimitable stamp on John Updike’s spell-binding tale. With Paul Herbert (Radio Times and Thoroughly Modern Millie) as musical arranger and supervisor, this musical comedy of seduction and the supernatural is not to be missed!

Contains occasional bad language and seduction scenes.
