After leaving her cheating husband, Bea discovers, to her horror, that her nice Jewish son Hal has secretly been running a sex shop in London's Soho district. When Hal closes up shop for a two-week holiday, his prudish mum insists upon smartening-up the ramshackle store while he's gone. Afraid to lose sales in the meantime, she finds she has a flare for counseling the lonely customers who wander in -- and for selling them sex toys. Surrounded by edible knickers and blow-up dolls, Bea discovers more about sexuality than she ever wanted to know, which may be just what she needs to save her own troubled marriage.

"Len Richmond is London's answer to Neil Simon."

London Theatre Review

"In 70s London, the only thing worse than telling your mum you own a sex shoppe is having her run it."
