“I didn’t expect Love to show up at my dreary new job. Clean-up in aisle four!”
Slippery When Wet follows the journey of an aspiring actor who, having returned to her hometown to work in a supermarket, is forced to face her complicated relationship with her hometown when she falls madly in love with a colleague. We follow this bawdy young woman through drunken nights, embarrassing encounters and ‘bad feminism’, as she debates abandoning her theatrical city dreams for Love (with a capital L).
