Description

Self-obsessed Sephie finds herself back in the sanctuary of the Girl Guides following the death of her Mother. In a last ditch effort to fend off eternal unhappiness she attempts achieving her Entertainers badge for the fourth time. A devastating comedy about how to harness your grief, find your pack and never giving up. From 2018's double Fringe-First winning Francesca Moody Productions (Angry Alan, Square Go), written and performed by fast-rising Remy Beasley (Stella, Sky) and directed by Fringe First Award winner, Hannah Banister. 'An incredible comedy acting and writing talent' (Ruth Jones, on Remy Beasley).

I adored this show - my favourite one woman show this year. Remy Beasley's stage presence is magnetic and her writing imaginative and poignant. She has magical way of connecting with the audience and responding perfectly to their reactions. Not to be missed!

Hilarious, poignant and (it has to be said) somewhat whacky portrayal of an extrovert but brittle personality, brilliantly acted and always engaging. 3.5*

So so good.
Probably the best show I've seen at the fringe. In any year.
Please go see this.
