Janis Barlow is the book volunteer for the local community library – since the cuts she was ‘retired’ from the hair salon. She has tried different ways to keep herself busy with synchronised swimming, meditation and all the therapies available. This has not brought the rewards she wanted. So, she grabs her rollers, her crystals and her basket of books and starts on her quest to transform the lives in her community. A feel-good play looking rural isolation right in the eye that will make you laugh and maybe shed a little tear.

'You'll laugh and cry with Janis as you watch her exploring her new passion.The audience feel as though they are just listening to a conversation from this bubbly, funny, but sad dreamer - a very likeable character with whom you want to spend your time.' Buxton Fringe Review
