Description

Can you be a perfect wife and mother and stay true to your inner weirdo? For years, Louise Leigh has been listening to the voice telling her that to be a proper woman you have to be perfect. Now she’s pushing 50, could it be time to listen to someone else, maybe even someone with... is that a proboscis? 'Imaginative, brilliant' (Scotsman). 'Great performance, great confidence, great jokes' (Gary Delaney). 'Maybe a triathlon would be a better way to express a mid-life crisis' (Louise’s inner critic).

Went to see this show this morning on the recommendation of a friend. I loved it. Always tricky trying to make a sober audience laugh at 1030 in the morning but Louise managed it in spades. So many of her anecdotes rang true. She was a joy to watch and I was only sad that we finished ahead of schedule as I could have listened to more of her tales. I hope you manage to get to see her as she is only here for a week.
