about the show

Take the National Express when your life’s in a mess, it will make you smile

Three women set out on a journey aboard a National Express coach heading home to Manchester observing, eating and drinking the miles and the time away. Their aim is to test pop group The Divine Comedy’s theory, ‘Take the National Express when your life’s in a mess, it will make you smile’. With the prospect of a chemical toilet on board can a journey on a National Express really you smile?
