Horsebridge Comedy Club - Virginia Ironside – Growing Old Disgracefully
Saturday 17 May 8pm (doors/bar 7pm)
Tickets £10 in advance / £12 on the door / £8 concessions
When an agony aunt reaches sixty, she can lie like a trooper, jump off a bridge or take to the stage.
In Virginia Ironside’s case, she’s still an agony columnist, for the Independent and writes a column for the Oldie, but she also performs her own one-woman show, ‘Growing Old Disgracefully’. The show arose from performing at literary festivals to publicise her book, ‘No! I Don’t Want to Join a Bookclub!’ but now, a few years later, her new book has come out, ‘No! I Don’t Need Reading Glasses!’ and she’s still on the road.
In her show she explains why unlimited free drugs, fun funerals, grandchildren and sex, or even better, no sex, make the sixties the best (and funniest) time of your life.
“Funny, sensible and smart... an absolute delight” The Scotsman
“Life-affirming ramble through the joys of being a sexagenarian, delightfully refreshing addition to the scene... beautifully judged… sharpness of observation and writing… This is a witty show for all ages” Independent
“Honest, irreverent, frank charm. Beautiful humour and perfect poise. This is a five-star show” British Theatre Guide
