'Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting, supportive and making each other look bigger and better.'
So says Kathy Lette, funny, feminist author, who invites you to her new show, Girls’ Night Out.
It’s a psychological strip tease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.
So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth and full frontal frankness, guaranteed. (Men, attend at your own risqué!)
