Description

Lorraine attempts to break free from the confines of having a voice which always gets mistaken for being that of a man. Those on the other end of the phone feel they have the right to do and say as they please but there is only so much that she can take. With comments like ‘you are a man because you sound like one’, Lorraine sets on a journey to prove once and for all that she is all woman. Based on real-life events and full of WTF moments, it's not to be missed!

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 11 days ago

Lorraine Chademunhu has an unusual issue to deal with. She’s a woman with a particularly deep voice, and if you can’t actually see her, then you could believe you’re talking to a man. That’s the problem she’s built this comedy show round – the misunderstandings and petty inconveniences of people...
