Waiting For Gateaux

by Ed Waugh & Trevor Wood

A comedy about friendship, frostbite and French fries

Mo-tivators is the worst health and fitness club in the country – run by Maureen – from a small hall in the middle of nowhere – attracting clientele with nothing to do.

Fat and fabulous Jackie comes to get away from her philandering husband and brings her young sister Whitney along to keep her out of trouble. Donald comes because he secretly loves Maureen – he’s lost 12 stone so far – if he doesn’t ask her out soon there’ll be nothing left of him!

Things seem to be on the up when Sophie, a researcher for a reality TV programme, comes to check out the club. But when a snowstorm arrives it brings with it revelations which will change their lives forever.
