Growing Old Disgracefully

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 OId 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…Directed by Nigel Planer

“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.
