Single Girls Guide
In the stylish world of 1966 Manhattan, beloved newspaper columnist Emma Woodhouse is still single and about to turn 30. As her father urges her to marry the first available man – and her editor urges her to toe the line, she begins to transform her household advice column into a platform for change, encouraging readers to drop their casseroles, question the nature of marriage and demand sexual freedom.
In a Helen Gurley Brown inspired move, Emma recruits her first ‘Single Girl’ and vows to overhaul her life, setting into motion a chain of events that culminates in hilarious calamity at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. Emma ends up learning, along with her protégé, that ‘when it’s right, it’s never perfect.’
Filled with the buoyant sounds and bright spirit of the early 1960s, Single Girls Guide is a fizzy precursor to Sex And The City that echoes the questions we continue to ask about marriage, love, sex and being single. Marriage will never be the same, but neither will being single!
