Popular touring theatre company Hull Truck commissioned the original production of Gordon Steel's Like A Virgin and brought it to Cumbria way back in 1996.

Now Tabs Productions have revived the play with one of the original cast members, Carole Copeland, directing.

Like A Virgin is a romp through the bubblegum years of teenage life.

The action follows Angela and Maxine, besotted Madonna fans who dream of copying their idol's success.

Moving and often very funny, the show is an emotional roller-coaster ride through hope, sex, ambition, despair, and - most of all - love.

Be sure to take a spare hanky or several.

You can see Like a virgin at:

  • Stanwix Arts Centre - Carlisle, Friday 20 February
  • Rosehill Theatre - Whitehaven, Sunday 22 February
  • Forum 28 - Barrow in Furness, Monday 15 March
"Bursting with wit and vitality... an incredibly moving play... wonderfully life affirming"
