Every Town has its Cocktail Bar where everybody wants to be seen. From the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads. We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the Pina Coladas and the practised smiles. Relationships are tested and tempers fray as the evening wears on, but each of them has a story of their own to tell.


Adele – a single Mum, aching for a better life, but needs to make ends meet. She is not interested in finding another man at all. She hates working in the bar but has no choice for she needs the money and gets little support. She wants another chance at life. She and Mel do not see eye to eye.

Carol – a graduate with aspirations which haven’t panned out – yet. She is frustrated that she is working in a bar with her talents as a photographer. She is jealous of some of the yuppie customers who seem to have well paid jobs and speak nice. She is determined to wait and work her way up to the job she wants.

Mel – older than the others. Quite likes working in a cocktail bar. Is keeping a secret about her younger self and must decide what to do about it. She has met a man that she is in love with but has reservations about their relationship. Steady and set in her ways.

Nicky – the youngest, she aspires to be a professional dancer. She wants to get away from working in the bar but is frightened of what would happen to her if she did. Unsure of herself but can match the other girls for wit.
