Presented by Georgie Jones
Georgie Jones has finally cracked what it means to be a grown-up.
She’s still haphazardly stumbling through adulthood trying to figure it out, padded bras and waxing disasters in tow.
Ish is part-party, part-epic poem.
It’s a celebration of the mistakes as well as the victories.
It’s dance routines made up in bedrooms and midnight best friends made in the ladies loo.
It’s heartbreak and loneliness and standing in front of the mirror trying to figure out how to love yourself.
It’s first kisses that taste of chicken tikka.
It’s how to be sexy according to porn.
It’s tampons up sleeves and blood-stained knickers stuffed into sanitary bins.
It’s getting pissed and partying. Actually, it’s quite a lot of getting pissed and partying.
Set to a nostalgic soundtrack of 90’s/00’s bangers, Ish is a charming and touching show, as brave as it beautiful, laced with warmth and hilarity at every turn. “Fun, warm, witty and engaging … genuinely connects with the audience” – Reviews Hub
Commissioned by China Plate, Warwick Arts Centre, Midlands Arts Centre, Attenborough Arts Centre, In Good Company and CPT. Supported by Arts Council England.
