Dirty Dusting

Treat yourself to an evening of pure theatrical Viagra on Saturday 26 January when Dirty Dusting comes to the Empire Theatre, Consett following three sell-out UK tours.

Starring Crissy Rock (Benidorm, I’m A Celebrity), Leah Bell (Seriously Dead), Dolores Porretta and Andrew Green, Dirty Dusting tells the story of a trio of hard-working cleaners who are facing the axe.

They might certainly be past their best, beyond their sell-by date and over the hill, but they certainly won’t take threats of redundancy lying down. These game ‘girls’ set up a phone sex service, known as ‘The Telephone Belles’, and that’s when the fun really begins.

They’re the only chat-line girls with dusters, attitude and their very own bus passes! Don’t miss the original old-timers who become good-time girls in this must-see comedy.

Written by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood, it has become one of the biggest and most popular plays to come out of the North East in recent years.

So pick up your phone and call our Box Office on 03000 262 400 or book online at empireconsett.co.uk to book your tickets priced £21 (£20 concession).
