"This years theme is Balance for Better and we’d love you come along to this, our third and final Bryan play.

"Don’t worry if you haven’t been before, we’ll bring you up to speed. Then in Part two, there’ll be some oo’ing, a bit of ouch’ing, lots of ah’ing and plenty of WOW’ing, as we reflect on womens lives.’

A play of two very distinct halves, of two turbulent journeys. Bryan and the crew from the Working Men’s Club are back and there’s a new bout as the battle of the sexes continues with those women from next door.

It’s all ‘argie-bargie’, for a while at least, until events take a turn and a period of reflection is forced upon everyone.

A spokesperson for the show said: "It’s International Women’s Day and what better time to look back at a woman’s life – at women’s lives. We’re driving gender balance, will you join us on the journey."

Proceeds from the show will go towards the charity which has helped thousands of women in the county in the last 30 years. It will be performed on March 8 at Oswaldtwistle Civic Arts Centre and Theatre.

Tickets are £7.50 online at and available at any centres in Accrington, Burnley, Blackburn, Blackpool and Preston
