Theatre (comedy, spoken word)

  • Babes in arms policy: Babies do not require a ticket
  • Policy applies to: Children under 18 months


A hilarious and poignant comedy about a girl obsessed with The Eurovision Song Contest. Through spoken word, cynical stand-up, lip-syncing and dancing to Eurovision songs, she tries to find her voice on stage. However, as the show progresses, her facade starts to unravel and she becomes overwhelmed by her inability to organize her own thoughts. 'An incredibly enjoyable one-woman play about art, the universe, self-expression, and Eurovision!' **** (Everything-Theatre.co.uk). 'A dynamic and very entertaining piece, immaculately performed' (TheReviewsHub.com). 'A wild, frenetic piece' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'The talented Liverpool-based writer has pulled off something rather fine here' (TheReviewsHub.com).

Saw this Sunday eve (20/08/23), and enjoyed it for the mixture of play vs self reflection. Anything about Eurovision is a hit...and this one packed the songs and dancing, plus facts (some of which I did not know). Liverpool's finest storyteller.

An unusual piece , but I was never bored and we talked about it all through dinner. It was really thought provoking.

Previous reviewers have said it all. But the honesty and talent of the performer just makes me want to show support. So much is packed into this show. Very original, very intelligent, full of mood changes. Please come back to Edinburgh with a show next year - if you haven’t become an international star before then!

I have a daughter that loves Eurovision and a wife that loves Yarn. I like neither but this still seemed like a good show to visit for the three of us. Despite my dislike of Eurovision and Yarn I loved this show. There was so much energy, passion and personality on stage and it was compelling from beginning to end. Funny and touching in parts I would definitely recommend this, and to me these are the shows that make the Fringe what it is.

We chose to see this show at the last minute, because it was right time-right place, and the combination of Eurovision and crochet (two of my favourite things) was intriguing.
It is difficult to describe the show, and I feel a bit like the protagonist in that I have words in my head but can’t express them.
First of all I loved the snatches of Eurovision hits, and guess-the-gesture (who knew there are characteristic dance moves and gestures associated with famous Eurovision songs?)
The more serious element of the show is, (I think) about finding meaning in life and art, and how a piece of art somehow makes a specific connection with a person or audience (the analogy of a thread of yarn). You’ll just have to see it to understand!
We thought this was thought-provoking and enjoyable, and well worth the ticket price.
(Despite a marvellous crocheted costume, there is no real crotchet/knitting content- so please don’t let that put you off!)

If you crave sincerity, see this show. Earnestness bursts at every moment. I absolutely loved this strongly performed, thoughtfully written and honestly delivered performance and can't wait to see what this artist has in store in future years.

Please come to Manchester and do more Fringe work.

Really good.

This is a beautiful, deep, joyful spell of a story which truly embodies the spirit of the Fringe. Douze points to Ruby Shrimpton and Unstitching.
