Description

Full of laughter and tears, this is poetry as entertainment. Punctuated with true-life stories and song. Packed with humanity, compassion and pithy observations on life. From womanhood to war, from class and punk to love, and the beautiful game. Moving, funny, gaspingly honest. Expertly written and performed. 'Absolutely joyous, funny and emotional.' 'Told so simply, with great depth. A talent indeed.' (Audience Reviews). For previous shows, Bonnie Fechters and Gie's Peace: 'Deeply moving… mellow singing… charismatic' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Brilliantly dark humour' **** (ScotsGayArts.com).
