Following a critically acclaimed season at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, comedian Lou Conran is proud to present her ground-breaking show at MAC.
This is the real story of Lou’s experiences with baby loss. Not the obvious remit for comedy, but it was her intention to try to lift the taboo and open the discussion on a subject that the majority of us still struggle to deal with. As you will see from the glowing reviews, this is indeed what she succeeded in doing.
Imagine visiting your favourite friend / aunty / spinster / woman of independent means. She's a touch eccentric and always "alright". Until last year, when it wasn’t alright and it all went a bit wrong. With lessons learned, a bit of self-discovery and some painful yet funny situations, this is a story about life and, ultimately, death. But in a positive, uplifting sort of way.
