By golly, we’re back with another pearler of a show! Join us as we guide you through the world of 1950s advertising, Bobby style.

LongPlay’s intimate cinema space will be the setting for an advertising focus group run by Bobby and the Pins Consultancy Inc; where you the audience will be given previews of the very best products and mined for market research. All betwixt a repertoire of 1950s tunes such as Embraceable You, At The Hop and Sugartime.

We have had to finally accept the truth that barbershop quartets are not very lucrative. So we’ve gone into the money-makin’ world of professional advertising, without any formal training, but with a heck of a lot of self confidence.

Ad Women will introduce you to our extensive list of clients including Firth’s Front Bum Be-Gone, Spam In A Can, Valium, Hazel Bishop’s No Smear Lipstick and an in-house creation, Bobby Blue’s Magic Brew.

Expect the stuff of 1950s boardrooms: arrogance, over indulgence, hare-brained ideas and blatant manipulation.
