This black comedy takes place in the still room. It’s where the waiters wait…
It is 1981, Charles is about to marry Diana. It’s a day off work – but not for everyone. Set in Manchester, the waiting staff are preparing for the “Miss North West” competition that might revive the fortunes of both the staff and the small, tired hotel. School leaver Janice is working as a banqueting waitress whilst waiting for her O Level results. If she gets less than four, her father says she has to move out.
Janice is desperate to leave her home town and is struggling to see how that can happen – but then, a new waitress arrives. She is different to the other waiting staff and her sexual confidence and bold ideas challenge Janice’s own perceptions of the world.
