Rose lives on a farm with her husband and two children. She worries she may have married too young. Lola wants to sell her home. Nobody ever calls, and she has stopped opening the post. Lyndsey  and her best friend has stopped sitting beside her in art class.  

When breast cancer touches their lives, everything starts to unravel - Rose's marriage fall apart, Lola gets arrested and Lyndsey hides a cooked ham in a thorn bush.  

Unravelling the Ribbon tells the funny and touching story of these three women, as they interact, separate and come together in a moving and frequently hilarious tale of friendship and survival.

The director says 'So Unravelling the Ribbon is a play about Cancer. Must be depressing right? No its not! It is humorous, poignant and hopeful. So have a really enjoyable - yes enjoyable - night at the theatre.'

Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
