What do you get when you combine a wedding ring, burlesque and Pacman? Well, if you're Lizzie Boone, you might get therapy...

From the multi-award-winning Selina Helliwell, 'The Formidable Lizzie Boone' will pull you into Lizzie's world for a night of drama, healing and dark humour. Centred around a therapists office, this one-woman show explores the intricacies of humanity through a woman who loves vodka with lemonade and a cat called Lionel.

Lizzie catapults us through her life; from the torment of school bullies to darker experiences and chaotic spirals; the pieces of her life that jammed together, eventually pushing her over the edge and into her recent breakdown. With lively voice-overs bringing to life an array of characters from soothing therapist Marie to wild child Debz, amongst others, this play is bursting with soul and humanity.

A burlesque dance scene also features, showing off the sensual and theatrical side of burlesque and highlighting ‘the art of tease’ to be a way of finding your own spark and celebrating your womanhood.

Trigger Warning: Contains references to mental health/breakdowns and sexual assault.

So join Lizzie Boone for a night of drama, dark comedy and maybe a nipple tassel or two...
