A funny, sad and truthful romantic comedy about beating the biological clock.

Barbs Marshall is a celebrity hairdresser in Glasgow. She is successful and well off, but she is 39 years old and almost deafened by the ticking of her biological clock.

To make matters worse, her mother is a nag, her best friend is holding out on her, and her ex-husband has a new 22-year-old girlfriend. Then she meets a 26-year-old stranger who seems more than ready to oblige. But the complications are by no means over . . .

Liz Lochhead's play Perfect Days was first performed in August 1998 at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, winning a Fringe First Award.

The production was revived at Hampstead Theatre, London, in January 1999 and then transferred to the Vaudeville Theatre in the West End in June 1999.
