The Health Club Where You Can Have Your Cake And Eat It!

Mo-tivators is the worst health and fitness club in the country. Run by Maureen a ‘big-boned’ fifty- something widow from a small hall in the middle of nowhere it only attracts clientele who have nothing better to do!

Starring Mrs. Brown’s Boys Eilish O’Carroll, X’Factors Mary Byrne, Voice of Ireland and Celebrity Operation Transformations Kayleigh Cullinan and Dirty Dustings Nicole Banim.

Jackie comes to get away from her philandering husband and she’s started to bring 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 in the Irish-premiere of this riotous, laugh-a-minute comedy about friendship, frostbite and French fries!
