Buzzing (Debbie Bird)

By | Published on Sunday 18 August 2019

“Now, I’ve never been promiscuous”, says Debbie Bird, a middle-aged divorcee ready to delve into the world of one-night stands. After an unhealthy sex life in her 24 years of marriage, Bird attempts to seek out some new men but doesn’t know where to start or how to pursue them. Her daughter advises dating apps, but most of her dates are a failure: from a guy at the local church to a young barista, Bird soon realises that these men are just looking for sex and no connection. Equipped with sex toys and booze, Bird changes outfit onstage to help the audience picture the scene. She’s a confident and audacious performer, and her narrative will be incredibly relevant to many.

PQA Venues @ Riddle’s Court, until 26 Aug.
