Sue Baker's view...

The diary Bridget Jones might write if she makes it to a care home. Where the tally of daily consumption of wine and cigarettes has translated into tea drunk and loo visits made. Still mad, still wearing purple, Bridget and Joan continue to live it up and be the scourge of the care home. A parody of Bridget Jones and her diary, two mad old women continue to live life to the full as possible.

Synopsis

Bridget and Joan's Diary A Parody: Mad About the Toy Boy by Bridget Golightly, Joan Hardcastle

Meet Bridget and Joan: Thelma and Louise on mobility scooters, reluctant residents of the Second Best Magnolia Retirement Home, and lifelong friends joined at the artificial hip. It's been a wild year for the two rebellious wrinkletons: sherry and shoplifting, Sanatogen and sexting, and a mysterious toy boy who threatens their lifelong friendship and possibly even more -

About the Author

Bridget Golightly is eighty-nine years old. She won the 100 m, 800 m, triple jump and solo synchronised swimming events in the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games. Highlights of her sparkling stage and film career include two Academy Awards as Best Supporting Actress for Little Dorrit and Rocky V, and her much-lauded Titania against Sir John Gielgud's Bottom. Bridget is also a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician, renowned poet and international peacekeeper, and represented the United Kingdom in the 1959 Eurovision Song Contest with 'Boom-bang-a-ting-a-ling on a String'. When she's not busy bringing joy to the world, she likes to relax by drinking a nice cup of tea. Joan Hardcastle is eighty-six years old, comes from Yorkshire and doesn't believe a word Bridget says. Except the bit about the tea. Follow @BridgetandJoan on Twitter
