REVIEW EXCERPT FOR

ANNE'S NEW SHOW

“Never has the female body been put under such an hilarious microscope...There is something utterly punk about Gildea’s stage energy. She captures perfectly the dilemma of Irish women of her generation, hobbled by the micro-oppression's of conservative Catholicism, and engaging in a lifetime of micro-battles against this force. I am definitely the target audience for this show, and it spoke directly to me. But if any young people want to know what’s really going on in their mams’ and aunties’ secret lives, this funny and taboo-busting work blasts the lid right off."

Katy Hayes, Irish Independent
