Episode 13.11: Once Upon a Star…

Monday 29th May 2017 at The Wardrobe Theatre.

After her drunken tryst with Reg, Gina is desperate for Big Dick’s forgiveness. She eventually convinces him she will do anything to make it up to him. Elsewhere, new arrival Bunny Smith has been ejected from The Guild of Star People but Candi misunderstands her explanations about the cult and assumes she is literally from the stars: an alien!

Meanwhile, The Lake Survivors (Fred, AJ, Simpkins and Harold) meet to formalise their new Freemason-style group. Their first task is to make Harold happy again and AJ encourages him to smash up Pablo’s salon so he can move on. But Harold is still grieving for his dead love and Fred sees that this is not the answer for his son’s broken heart. Pablo is not dead however but still lost at sea! He is finally saved by a passing cruise ship, having been spotted by beautician Monica. The two of them have a lot in common and after talking about their childhoods, realise that they are long-lost siblings!
