Starting it off on a light note We Want To Be Better follows Annie and Bianka's relentless endeavours to Be Better. They're pretty fabulous already, but they could always be better! This brilliant piece of comedy brings to attention both societal and everyday issues while making you fall off your seat with laughter.. a pre warning for those on the more conservative side, these two don't hold back on anything!
