Thai Brides & Teacakes
It is four years to the day that bakery owners, Ma and Madeira were married in North Manchester’s first same sex civil partnership, and they want a very special gift ~ a baby. After being unsuccessful in their attempt to adopt a Vietnamese orphan, their attentions have turned to the local men as potential sperm donors. Early candidates proved to be something of a let down until the drop-dead gorgeous, and highly charismatic politician, Richard “Dickie” Moseley sweeps into town. However, all is not how it appears ~ not just for the two prospective mums, but for the whole community, as Dickie’s extreme right-wing policies spell disaster. The devastated Mancunians look for a saviour and it appears in the unlikely form of Fred the builder’s part time lap dancing Thai bride.
Performed at The Met, Bury and The Dancehouse, Manchester in September 2010.
