News and Reviews for this Show

August 10, 2018  North East Theatre Guide
We had been aware of Janey’s work for some years. Not only is she a fellow socialist and campaigner for equality, she is not afraid to get in the face of those in power. But she is much more than a woman who stood on a golf course with a pair of signs about the current American president.

This show features a whistle stop tour of some of her life story. Unlike some youngster at the fringe today, you get a real sense that Janey has many, many more tales where these came from. We have the real life encounters and protests with Trump of course but we also have so much more. This is a history of a Scottish woman of our time and you get the impression that she has hard to work hard for everything she has.

There are some tough moments amongst the comedy. I’m not that familiar with the sectarianism that was very much a part of Janey’s upbringing. Don’t get me wrong, I know it happens – it’s just that you don’t get that sort of thing happening on the streets on Hull or Newcastle.

This is a fabulous solo show and it is easy to see why the venue was packed. Click Here
