Guilty Pleasures

Theatre Productions UK Limited is proud to announce the world premiere of Guilty Pleasures, a raunchy and risqué comedy set in a steamy ‘ladies-only’ health spa. Written by Ron Aldridge, directed by Stephen Leatherland, and featuring an all-star cast, Guilty Pleasures is the next laugh-out-loud farce from the producers of the smash-hit comedy The Naked Truth.

 This riotous play follows the comedic misadventures of GC, the bold and brazen spa owner, and his hilarious staff of fantasy men with their sizzling spa specials! Fun ensues as they try to fulfil the special requests of their demanding female clients. But, when things start to get out of control, will they escape unscathed? And, when one of the men reveals he has testicular cancer, a more dramatic and serious side to the piece emerges. As all their various stories unfold and unravel, audiences will share their laughter and tears in this hilarious production tinged with a bittersweet edge.

 The cast is headed by a trio of high-profile hunks: Craig Chalmers (Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat & a runner-up from Any Dream Will Do), Marc Bannerman (Gianni di Marco in EastEnders & former I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! contestant) and CJ de Mooi (Eggheads).

 Spa-owner, GC, will be played by David Van Day (from the pop groups Dollar, Bucks Fizz, Guys ‘n’ Dolls; and former I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! contestant), whilst model-turned-actress-and-presenter Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks; Grange Hill; Loose Women & 60 Minute Makeover) takes on the role of his put-upon and over-worked secretary, Tilly, Pauline Fleming (Coronation Street; Brookside) plays man-eating minx, Mrs M and Alexis Strum plays naïve new-member, Judy.

 Probably the funniest and sauciest play to hit the UK stage since The Naked Truth, Guilty Pleasures promises to be a lively and bawdy romp filled with fun and including moments of genuine poignancy and tenderness.

 So, to experience the ultimate girls’ night out, get your gladrags on, meet up with your mates and prepare yourselves for ‘personal services’. Remember, at the GC Spa, your pleasure is their business and their motto is ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’.

 Adults only (may contain some slight male nudity – if you’re lucky enough to sit in the right seats!).

 A percentage of the profits from the production shall go to raising awareness and money for Everyman, the UK’s leading prostate and testicular cancer charity.
