Where to buy it


bittergirl charts the break-ups of three womenÑone single and dating, one co-habiting, one married with a child. This trio of Women Scorned experience heartbreak, hilarity, fairy-tales gone wrong, tequila, mounties, love, honour, car-keying, repeated viewings of An Affair To Remember, fake spleenectomies, and meetings of Breakups Anonymous.
And then there are the men! The ones who want to alphabetize your CDs, the ones who give you shoelaces for your birthday. See the bittergirls list all of those things you should have told him the truth about. See Barbie and Ken break up! Laugh very hard.
The phenomenon that is bittergirl had three sold-out runs in Toronto, toured to London, England and played off-Broadway in NYC. This new, full-length version of the script has even more bittergirl wit and hard-won wisdomÑand music, too!

Mary Francis Moore is a bittergirl because chocolate is fattening, because she’s never had a tan, and because he dumped her before she dumped him. Collectively, the bittergirls have been dumped 257 times.
