Greater Manchester Fringe: The Formidable Lizzie Boone
- Sat 25 Sep 2021

What do you get when you combine a wedding ring, burlesque and Pacman?
Well, if you’re Lizzie Boone, you might get therapy…
Lizzie will pull you into her world for a night of drama, healing and dark humour.
Centred around a therapists office, this one-woman show explores the intricacies of humanity through a woman who loves vodka with lemonade and a cat called Lionel.
Lizzie catapults us through her life; from the torment of school bullies to darker experiences and chaotic spirals; the pieces of her life that jammed together, eventually pushing her over the edge and into her recent breakdown.
With lively voice-overs bringing to life an array of characters from soothing therapist Marie to wild child Debz, amongst others, this play is bursting with soul and humanity.
A burlesque dance scene also features, showing off the sensual and theatrical side of burlesque and highlighting ‘the art of tease’ to be a way of finding your own spark and celebrating your womanhood.
Trigger Warning: Contains references to mental health/breakdowns and sexual assault.
So join Lizzie Boone this September for a night of drama, dark comedy and maybe a nipple tassel or two…
