The Umbrella Birds

The girls return with a series of sketches set in that bastion of insecurity and loneliness that is the changing room in a women’s clothes store. Brides, shoplifters and Jesus freaks all emerge from the cubicles and though it is well-acted and staged, it lacks the comi-tragic peaks that made their previous efforts stand out.
