(I’m in my dressing gown, eating boiled eggs, bear with…) Right, imagine visiting your favourite friend/aunty/spinster/woman of independent means. She’s a touch eccentric and always “alright”. Until last year, when it wasn’t alright and it all went a bit wrong. With lessons learned, a bit of self-discovery and some painful yet funny situations, this is a story about life and, ultimately, death. But in a positive, uplifting sort of way. ‘Naturally funny’ (Sarah Millican). ‘Masterful at owning a room’ (FringeReview.co.uk). As seen on BBC, ITV & Channel 4. |
