ISH...

Given the recent stories in the news about abortion laws across the USA that are eroding women’s rights into dust, this impressive monologue show by Georgie Jones couldn’t be more relevant.

ISH...

What’s most impressive about this show is its simplicity in its staging and production. It doesn’t need anything flashy.  The words spoken are the main star and I cannot help but be mesmerised by the writing talent that Georgie possesses.

The minute I walked in she was there greeting everyone and was so warm and friendly it felt like I was saying hello to an old friend. I think it’s something that really stuck out and made me focus on the person behind the show, and it gave the whole thing a bit more realness. 

Beginning her hour long monologue, the audience is invited on a journey through school along with the perils and pressures of growing up as a girl in today’s society. There are so many highs interspersed throughout this, all with infectious humour being their driving force. But rather impressively, there are a handful of more heartfelt moments about sexual assault and what defines consent that take a much more sober approach, providing a stark contrast. 

It’s moments like these - full of rhymes written like tumbling streams of thought - that I thought were, perhaps, this show’s biggest selling point as they resonated the most with me personally. 

Whatever you experience was like growing up as a teenager, whether is was in 1970 or 2017 there’s something in this show for you!
