Written by John-Victor and Tamar Broadbent
In Club Mex you are on the dancefloor in the heart of the action, joining Mel and her two best mates as they experience the highs, lows and hangovers of Cancun in a heart-warming coming-of-age comedy. Club Mex has a script penned by Tamar Broadbent, one of the UK’s most exciting emerging female stand-up comedians, and an infectious, original musical score by John-Victor that fuses pop, dance and musical theatre. Grab your flip-flops…we’ll see you in Mexico!
Club Mex had a 3 week development production at The Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester in January 2019.
