Written and devised by Sarah Miller and Drama Queens Women’s Performance Group. Drama Queens was a project for women which began life in 2006 as a series of workshops on the theme of 'escape'.


Sidetracked was the result of those workshops, with the characters, scenarios and words from the workshops being pulled together into a script by Sarah Miller.


Belinda, ex-con and red blooded biker chick is running from her past; trouble is she’s got her nervous spinster neighbour in tow and the getaway vehicle is an ancient motor-bike and sidecar. Still, it’s all in control until they meet the minibus from ‘Startrite in the Community’


Sidetracked is the hilarious story of wild women and disastrous camping featuring a pagan naming ceremony, and lots of cow-muck.
Thelma and Louise never had these problems!
