Cast 4 women
Randa Covington age*40-50 – Something of a “perfectionist.” Her life has hit a career roadblock & this brings the realization that she “has no life” & has no idea how to acquire one.
Dot Haigler age* 55-70 – Following the sudden death of her husband, all their plans for retirement have evaporated & she must now find an alternative life….alone.
Marlafaye Mosley age* 50-60 – Abandoned by her spouse, she is an out & out ‘Texas Gal’ whose main aims in life are revenge & putting the past behind her.
Jinx Jenkins age* 45-55 – All energy, she offers her ‘life-coaching’ skills to the others but is blissfully unaware of the shortcomings of her own existence.
**Ages are indications only & may well alter subject to audition.
Randa, Marlafaye & Dot meet at the end of a particularly stressful yoga session & their mutual commiserations lead to an agreement to meet later for drinks. At this meeting, hosted by Randa, they are joined by Jinx who has bumped into both Dot & less fortunately (& unknown to Dot) Randa! Over refreshments, a relationship, founded in their common circumstance of solitude, begins to grow. Jinx in the self-styled capacity of ‘life-coach’ is the catalyst in encouraging the others to “get out into the world & just go for it.” Over the forthcoming weeks the ladies embark on a miscellany of new experiences, simultaneously coming to terms with their demons & learning to embrace life, each other & themselves. Many of their adventures are fueled by ‘adult beverages’ to the point where the title might easily have become “The Georgia Guzzling Group!” At times hilarious, at times poignant, audiences will have no difficulty in recognizing &/or identifying with much of what is said!
