‘the next best to abba’

Set in a pole dancing class (the latest get-fit craze) The Naked Truth is a brilliantly funny comedy about sisterhood. It’s a women thing, as five very different women struggle hilariously to conquer pole dancing for an event to raise awareness and money for a breast cancer charity. As their stories unfold and unravel, they share laughter and tears in this hilarious, sad and ultimately moving play.

The Naked Truth is a poignant and uplifting comedy, a call to all women, and celebrating strength through adversity. It’s a show for women, about women, that men absolutely must see (if they dare!).
