The paper mill that long propped up the economy of Elliston Falls has been shut down, sending the town spiraling into an economic depression. When a chipper but overwhelmed tourism officer arrives to lend a hand, she discovers an unlikely business partnership in the three brassy friends that make up the local chapter of Weight Watchers. Could the ladies' plan for a custom underwear business (complete with giant knickers as a roadside attraction) really be the town's salvation? This hilariously irreverent comedy celebrates determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the willingness to bare it all.

Published Reviews

"A clever and cheeky tale... Underlying the laughs is a very touching human story of small town values and resiliency which resonates."

The Reformer (Port Dover)

"Knickers will have you laughing till your sides hurt! ...Packed with outrageous one-liners it is a must see for anyone wanting to put a glow of merriment on their summer."

PortStanleyNews.com

"This is a comedy played for laughs to the hilt...it has the delicious gossipy attitude of The Women, the outrageous money-making scenario of Calendar Girls, and the hilarious climactic finale of The Full Monty."

St Thomas/Elgin Weekly News

"Plenty of laughs, including a few big ones that appeal equally to both genders."

St Thomas Times-Journal
