The Life and soul of the staff-room, Bernice Clulow's selfless devotion to her disabled mother, Maureen is legend. Yet every evening she heads home, the smile becomes fixed: Mum will want to talk. She demands despatches from the human race, but Bernice just wants to kick her shoes off (And her Mum's head in). Missing out on those precious mother-daughter moments, Cath Clulow wisely flew the best straight from school. Now belting out karaoke classics to vomiting, rollocking hen parties in Puerto Banus, she wonders how a promising career in musical theatre has gone so horribly off-key. House-bound, honour-bound and homeward-bound, the Clulows pick their way through a minefield of guilt,resentment and fear.

Dawn French (Bernice Clulow), the 'French' half of the comedy duo 'French and Saunders', Dawn is one of Britain's best-loved actresses and comedienne's. Her West End credits include "My Brilliant Divorce" at the Apollo in 2003; "When We Are Married" at the Savoy in 1996 and as 'Bottom' in a feminist staging of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Albery in 2001. Her TV credits include "The Vicar of Dibley" amd "Murder Most Horrid".

80's pop singer Alison Moyet (Cath), made her West End stage debut in August 2001, in "Chicago", at the Adelphi Theatre.
