This is a great one women show, witty, warm and moving. Great rapport with the audience, well worth going to see.

Gilligan’s venturing through the world of adoption, trying to reunite with her biological family and discovering her own identity are all truly breath-taking. At some points maintaining dry eyes is the task at hand, at others, the task turns to capturing your composure amidst raptures of laughter. Her bubbly personality excitedly imbues the crowd with a sense of wisdom and uplifts them with positivity, all whilst simultaneously tickling their funny bones with an ever-present wit and tactful hilarity.
