Sleepless and sexless
Seductions and success
Can Ali and Rob survive it all? 

Ali is a new mum, loving wife and successful hair stylist. Two years after her son’s birth, things aren’t going to plan. She is stuck in a shabby local salon trying to make ends meet. Husband Rob is so intent on making it as an artist, he barely notices.

Their luck seem to change when glamorous Shoreditch gallery owners Suzanne and Nirjay launch Rob’s career. But what are they really after?

A biting and witty take on parenting, sex
and power

Inspired by my own shock at becoming a mum, I want to look at the desires and tribulations of modern women through the polar opposites of Ali and Suzanne. BITCHED takes a witty, unflinchinglook at our lives as we try to negotiate the stresses of 21st century work, sex and kids – asking is it an impossible task? Or does something have to give? Can a woman really have it all?”  Sharon Raizada

As the gender pay gap runs rampant in the UK and the #BBCWomen demand urgent action to ‘rectify injustices’ following the BBC pay row in September, BITCHED looks at the endemic sexist structures of society through Ali’s struggle to get back to work at an appropriate level following having a child.

BITCHED asks how much are you prepared to give up for the perfect work-life balance? Your friends? Your career? Your husband? And is it worth the sacrifice?
