A true story – eye-opening, hilarious and moving – of love, life, laughter and sex.

West End Girls is a world premiere adaptation of Barbara Tate’s autobiographical bestseller, brought to you by the writer/director team behind 2010’s Circa hit The Great Gatsby.

An innocent and lonely young woman finds a friend and the learning experience of a lifetime when she takes a job as a prostitute’s maid, and meets impossible, adorable, self-destructive Mae, the Queen of Soho.

The tumultuous and poignant friendship at the heart of this spellbinding tale drives a true story of adventure, survival and growing up, told with honesty and real heart.
