To quote from the script´s dust jacket:
Every town has its Shakers, the oh-so trendy cocktail bar where everyone wants to be seen: from the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a ´Long Slow Comfortable Screw´. We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and Pina Coladas in this revised version of the ever-popular play.
