Description

Murphy retraces the steps of her transformative years, from fire-starter in a football shirt to feathers, tits and teeth. Tales of youth, growing up in Essex/suburbia, unique anecdotes from a professional dance career and life now as an ex-showgirl. Becoming increasingly aware of her mortality results in a darkly wry Abbie trying to figure out what her next move is – in a bid to reach the seemingly unattainable and enviable state of contentment. 'Deadpan anecdotes of the industry is a hidden gem' (Skinny). 'Impeccable comic insight' (TheWeeReview.com).

A few years ago, when facing a career crisis, Abbie Murphy’s friend asked her to close her eyes and imagine who she wanted to be. “Dawn French,” came Murphy’s immediate reply. “Or Jennifer Saunders, or Joanna Lumley, or Kristin Wiig, or Melissa McCarthy.” She’s not there yet, but she’s made...
