Pop icon Toyah Willcox is to star in the latest production of Hormonal Housewives, which will arrive at The Castle in Wellingborough on Tuesday.

Hormonal Housewives is said to be the perfect show for women whose man is more James May than Christian Grey.

The show is back for another tour with new sketches, as well as the best bits from last time around.

It covers such everyday topics as the joys of teenagers, the challenge of Ikea and the insanity of DIY.

Penned by Julie Coombe and John McIsaac, Hormonal Housewives promises to deal with subjects which make women tick (or ticked off).

The 2013 tour stars Toyah, who became a household name as a punk princess in the 1980s.

In a career spanning 30 years, Toyah has had 13 top 40 singles, recorded 20 albums, written two books, appeared in more than 40 stage plays, made 10 feature films and presented such diverse TV programmes as The Good Sex Guide Late, Watchdog and Songs of Praise.

Her career began in her home town of Birmingham, in 1977, when film director Derek Jarman offered her the role of Mad in the punk epic Jubilee. She went on to play many other major roles, including appearing alongside Katherine Hepburn in the film The Corn Is Green.

A spokesman said: “Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, Toyah will be bringing the laughs to Wellingborough this spring.

“Ideal for a girls’ night out, Hormonal Housewives is guaranteed to be a hilariously funny evening.”

Tickets cost £20 and the show starts at 7.30pm. Call the box office on 01933 270007 or visit www.thecastle.org.uk.
