Dirty Dusting

Dirty Dusting - Wood and Waugh’s Tyneside comedy masterpiece premiered at the Customs House in 2003 and hasn’t stopped since. With packed runs at the Theatre Royal and performances world-wide, it has been one of the most successful plays to have emerged in the region since the war.

An evening of hysterical, laugh-out-loud, heartwarming comedy with veteran cleaners, Olive, Gladys and Elsie, who have an unusual solution to coming redundancy. A chance wrong number gives them a new business start-up idea – a telephone-sex line! They’ve got motive, opportunity and a lifetime of experience, more or less …… You’ll never look at a hoover in the same way after this!
