Directed by Nigel Planer,the show premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2009, and is now touring the UK.
“This is a witty show for all ages, providing a lunchtime oasis of grown-up calm and wisdom amid the histrionics of the festival. Plus, it’s the first, and probably the last, time you’ll ever hear a colostomy-bag showstopper or a glucosamine sulphate-related heckle.” – Independent
“This doyenne of Fleet Street delivers her observations with precision, style and wit. Her writing is beautiful, funny, sensible and smart – and her show, directed by The Young Ones’ Nigel Planer, is an absolute delight.” – Scotsman
