Joanne McNally – Prosecco Express

Described as ‘a truly gifted stand up’ by The Sunday Times, join Joanne as she revisits her
irreverent and critically acclaimed show The Prosecco Express.

Due to a relentless ageing process, Joanne is suddenly in her late thirties with no husband,
no kids, no pension and no plan. She is full of questions: if she doesn’t birth anything, who will
be obligated to watch her die so she doesn’t have to do it alone? Can she start a GoFundMe
page to get a golden tomb built for single people to get buried in together, or do we all just get
thrown into a mass grave and covered in cat hair? When a man on a dating app identifies as
‘spiritual’, is it safe to assume he has the personality of a spoon? If you do all your drinking in
the bath, can you write it off as self-care? ‘Dark, hilarious, strangely reassuring’ [The
Independent], Joanne is on a mission to solve absolutely nothing.

Venue: Quays Theatre
