Guilty Pleasures and Carnage at the Alban Arena
17:35 20 April 2012

Following the success of The Naked Truth! it follows the comic misadventures of bold and brazen spa owner GC and his staff of fantasy men.
They try to fulfil the special requests of their demanding female clients – until things start to get out of control.

It also stars Pauline Fleming (Coronation Street) as the sophisticated Mrs M and the long-suffering Tilly is played by Terri Dwyer, star of Hollyoaks and former presenter of Loose Women.
