Description

Bri is not who she used to be, so she's revisiting the five parties that changed her. Gobby is a playlist of awkward encounters, starting over and growing up. A biting and heartfelt odyssey about what it really means to be loud, this new play is a darkly comic telling of survival, an exploration of self-awareness and a lesson in how to throw a really good party. ***** ‘A phoenix rising from the popped balloons and empty cups, Gobby is raw, triumphant and a soaring one-woman odyssey’ (StageWhispersReviews.wixsite.com). **** (RemoteGoat.com). 'Pure genius' **** (NorthWestEnd.co.uk).

The Feminist Fringe (4/5 stars) 25 days ago

Life of the party? Then this show is for you. Gobby takes you on the wild and enlightening journey of Bri, through five different parties and five different stages of self-discovery. This show provides the audience an exclusive insight into the loudest voice at the party and the underlying complexities that we as humans tend to brush over.

The F Word 27 days ago

I am entranced by the unflinching portrayal of Bri. She is at turns uncomfortable, angry, lonely, loud and happy – in short a fully fleshed out character. The show’s exploration of victimhood and blame is on the nail, and while it doesn’t always make for comfortable viewing, it is deeply satisfying
