This trio of Women Scorned experience heartbreak, hilarity, fairy-tales gone wrong, tequila, mounties, love, honour, car-keying, repeated viewings of An Affair To Remember, fake spleenectomies, and meetings of Breakups Anonymous. And then there are the men! The ones who want to alphabetize your CDs, the ones who give you shoelaces for your birthday. See the bittergirls list all of those things you should have told him the truth about. See Barbie and Ken break up! Laugh very hard. The phenomenon that is Bittergirl had three sold-out runs in Toronto, toured to London, England and played off-Broadway in NYC. This new, full-length version of the script has even more bittergirl wit and hard-won wisdom.
