Rachel Jackson: Bunny Boiler (Hannah Layton Management)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2017

Rachel Jackson doesn’t believe in the concept of “the one”, yet she’s still convinced that every man she dates is it. Anecdotes of tumultuous past relationships are laid bare as she recounts the men who got away – and it’s probably for the best they did. From one toxic affair to the next, Jackson knows the mistakes and bad decisions she’s made, but she doesn’t learn. This overarching theme is easy to relate to, but with no filter and great comedic timing, the best ‘Fleabag’ style punches come when it’s clear that she’s had more bizarre experiences than most. With a personality that fills the room, Jackson reminds us that we all get carried away sometimes: we’re all probably one false move from being a bunny boiler.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
