Author(s): Steve Brown and Justin Greene Company: Royal Exchange Theatre
Venue: Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Dates:

Inspired by the unique life of Viv Nicholson, who on winning the Football Pools in 1961 went on lavish spending-sprees, splashing out on furs, cars, champagne and parties—until it all came crashing down around her.

Addicted to excess and seduced by materialism, Viv takes us through the kaleidoscopic and messy journey of her life.

From the council flats of Castleford to the grandeur of Garforth, to new handbags and husbands, Viv faces the ultimate question: after the champagne stops flowing, can money really buy happiness?
