Get ready, Med – because the Nolan Sisters are taking to the high seas to perform together for the first time in years…
Coleen, Linda, Maureen and Anne will reflect on their past, settle old scores, bare their souls and secrets and indulge in a raucous, joyous celebration of midlife on their own terms, all while exploring the Mediterranean on one of the world’s largest and most luxurious cruise ships, the MSC Grandiosa.
Relationships, family, body image, careers, ageing, dating, religion, men, sex, death, carbohydrates and the finer points of Renaissance sculpture: there’s no subject these ladies won’t get stuck into.
And forget grand tours; you’ve not seen France, Italy and Spain until you’ve seen it through the eyes of Blackpool’s brash, ballsy first family.
In an emotional finale, the group will be performing their iconic song I’m In The Mood For Dancing for their fellow passengers: the first time they’ve all sung together since they lost their sister Bernie to cancer in 2013.
Part travelogue, part performance, part family dynamics and also a look at how their unique and turbulent childhood formed the women they are today; the series is by turns hilarious, moving and life-affirming.
It’s an examination of what it means not only to be a woman of a certain age but to be a family. Hold onto your Pina Coladas, because you’re about to go on a girls’ trip you won’t forget.
