Jenny Eclair shares her mid-life crisis at Liverpool’s St George’s Hall
Younger than Madonna but eats crisps and likes wine, too young to die, but too old to stand near the edge in case she gets dizzy and falls over, professional Grumpy old woman Jenny Eclair announces How to Be a Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane), a brand new show and tour which stops off at St George’s Hall’s Concert Room on Wednesday 9th November.
Tackling questions such as, is swearing better than crying, HRT or boxercise – you decide, Jenny takes to the stage to explore some of the issues that surround the ageing process. Why are so many young people idiots, is Chardonnay medicinal, and how many episodes of ‘Bake Off’ does it take to lower your blood pressure? Watch a woman, happy to have lost her dignity years ago, lob a few grenades back in the face of ageism. Semi –bearded and suffering from outbreaks of gout and hysteria, Jenny puts middle age under the microscope and decides whether to laugh, cry or buy a dachshund!
